Smilingly playful, a dimple of learning Softens the frown of a western wild, yearning. Thou world apart, Of thy big brother Counterpart Thou hast thy toil, Din and turmoil, And aching heart Joy too thou hast. The thrill of power, Or idle hour In happy ease. While fond thoughts tease The fading past. Thou hast thy love. Heart-healing bliss Or faithless kiss That mars the plan Of God for man, Designed above. Hate fails thee not. Lies and deceit Mire thy sweet feet In sordid dust. While sin and lust Thy virtues rot. Yet all thy strife. Battles and trials. And wordly wiles Fit thee to be In each degree Prologue to life. 1917 Col0md0an GRADUATE SCHOOL CLIFFORD BANTA, B. A. Wabash College, 1915 FRANK FERDINAND BEVERLY, B. S. (Ch. E.)

It does not confine itself to pointing out the path to a professional career, nor does it attempt to remove the rough places from the road to quick and easy wealth. But to the searcher after knowledge, the one who desires culture, the man or woman who wishes to rise occasionally from the commonplace sphere of the money slave, look about in this great world of ours, and endeavor to understand its mysteries and enjoy its pleasures, this school presents itself like a good Samaritan and offers a helping hand. Here is the abode of science in its widest significance, of literature, languages, history. Here we may inquire into the beauties of Shakespeare or the mysteries un- covered by Locke. Here we may find the discoveries of Euclid or the theories of Adam Smith. We may learn to appreciate what we see, what we hear, what we read, and perhaps some day reach that plane where the things for centuries but guessed at are now known and understood. To accomplish these purposes, the College of Liberal Arts stands ever ready with its book, its pen, its experiment, and, albeit, its rod. It is therefore our purpose here to acknowledge our respect for those far-sighted and altru- istic souls who founded it; our indebtedness to those unselfish ones who control and conduct it ; and our regard for those who have escaped from the lure of the material and have attended it. m i plColomdodn Senior Hrts T - FRANK ERNEST ALLEN U. of C.

ITn flftcmonam This space is regretfully dedicated to the memory of those deadheads and tombstones who did not have " pep " enough to have their pictures taken. May they rest in peace!! 1917 Coli mdoottfll p - - Arts BuoK Ladies and gentlemen, gaze upon the manly countenance of this hand- some stranger. You need not con- fine your gaze to his countenance, for other parts of the picture are equally interesting. This is a photograph taken while the person in question was taking his annual plunge in University lake. His expression of joy results in his sense of satisfaction at accomplishing this difficult feat. For it was difficult, as his friends can testify. Another prominent feature of the picture is the modesty expres- sed in the pose. This is not unusual; it is rather his customary attitude. There once was a Prof, named Bushee Who wore a most charming goatee; He would paw it all day For it helped, by the way, Him in teaching Soc-i-ol-o-gee. GEMS FROM THE CHEMISTRY DEPARTMENT Hydrogen peroxide is used in the household for bites and other sicknesses. Hydrogen bromide is a gas at ordinary temperatures and when combined with mercury is the only gas to show this property. Bromine may be prepared from the mother of liquor. m DITTO FROM THE HISTORY DEPARTMENT The stem duchies were small princes that were under a duck after the death of Charlemagne. Knights had to look out for many discomforts, especially their lady loves. The Nicean creed states that God and Christ are co-ed. The long bow of the English could hit the best of knights at a distance in which they had no chance at all. Joan of Arc crowned the dolphin. She was a simple pheasant girl. 1917 There can be no doubt that this picture was taken before the first of the year. We are undecided wheth- er he is waiting in the Delta Gamma house for a lady with whom he has a date, or whether he has left his door key at home in his overalls and has to sleep on the landlady ' s best red plush davenport, or whether he was just too tired to climb up stairs after he got home. Anyway we are assured that this is Olds stuff. jA The Dean of this school is named Hellems; With politeness he all overwhellems; He can call you a fool Or kick you from school Just as though you were king of these reallems. MUST HAVE BEEN SOME AERONAUT (From a history quiz) — The flight of the king resulted in his final death. WHAT DO WE MEAN, FUSSING? Floyd Merrill (to Maude Eckel) I think all this fussing is foolish, Maude, but I would like to come over some Sunday evening and talk over some in- tellectual subjects. Barney sat straight up in bed, the room was in a flutter; he had a whirlwind in his head, no word could Barney utter. He just had had an awful dream, the dream in fact had been a scream; he dreamed that Mr. Wolle swore. What could have frightened Barney more? m It sometimes becomes the duty of any public- spirited publication to disclose to an eager world the shade as well as the sunshine. Hence with great re- luctance, we here publish the phiz of a prominent office-holder who has been convicted of a crime and branded. Henceforth, whenever you see him coming, hang on to your watch. A most pleasing man is Doc Ayer, Who teaches us French on the Squayer; He may know phonetics, And yet at Dramatics The Doctor is surely a bayer. 1917 m m m ■ i CotomdHdnil l S A short pudgy man is Doc Lien, But he has a remarkable bien, The he ' s not to blame His name fits his frame; A fact which is easily sien. Here we have a near humorous man sitting on the back of his own neck partly, and partly on the ground. He seems to be enjoying the situation. We do not blame him because if we were in his position, we would either choke from laughter or die of shame. MUST HAVE GONE TO COLLEGE (From quiz paper) — One of the causes of the disintegration of the Roman Empire was the attack of the barbarians on the boarders. A SLIP OF THE PEN The Knights Templar were a combination of monk and knight. wore their knight robe over their monk robe. WE WONDER WHY The librarian does not charge Arch Stockder room rent? George Rider does not wear a red and black flag? Horace Pierce does not buy fraternity pins by the gross? Charles Swindler does not run for Governor? Abraham Hartendorp does not accept all the professorships that have been offered him? Some one does not lend May Snyder a hair pin? They WE DISAGREE Miss Bunting says that stockings are vulgar. silk We have nothing to say about this picture of the two knoughts. It explains itself. 1917 1 t iB W ' Everyone says they ' re the cutest couple on the campus — hand- somest also.

Fred Sanborn — Yes, the investi- ture strife was about concentrated ground. Dr. Willard — Giotto, the Italian painter, was fond of studying the birds and flowers and other animals. Tommy Ryan — Well, I am not certain, but from the reading I should imagine — that is, it seems to me it was this way Dr. Willard — Miss Yeaman tell us something about Joan of Arc. Helen — Well, she was a nice sweet girl, and all that you know, but as far as family was concerned, she was absolutely nobody! The Prof. — We will refer the matter of the English church to Mr. Sibbald. Found on a quiz paper — Chain armor was a wire union suit! WE ' RE STRONG FOR THIS GENEROUS SPIRIT Ruth — Did you and Bev. dance a straight programme at the Prom? Blanche — Goodness no, we had three other dances! WHO SAYS A MUSICAL COURSE ISN ' T IN THE CURRICULUM? Two frosh were absorbing soup with considerable gusto. First Freshman — Why ' re you eating with so much noise for? Second ditto — What ' s the matter with you; ain ' t you doin ' the same thing? First — Yes, but you ' re eating in a higher pitch. Behold! the Emperor of all he surveys. The king is commanding his humble slavies. With one hand he tells the common hunks to keep out o f the picture and with the other he composes his regal countenance in order that he may impress the world with a real honest-to-Mike imperial frown. Behold! the king. What King? King Klemme!!!! 1917 Colom oa nlli REMARKABLE REMARKS Lorena Accola — " When I get married, I won ' t have to scrub the floor. Grant told me so. " Fred Sanborn and his gang — " Just dandy. " Bob Nafe — " You can ' t slam me, I ' m too dern smart. " Dean Hellems — " I am exceedingly grieved to inform you Gladys Low — " Well, Bob says " Liz Beresford— " Boulder 872. " Helen Masters Bunting — " Don ' t say Muhfey — say ' Vahsity. " Edith McKee— " Hello, is this the Phi Delt house? " This picture shows the President turning his back on all such frivolous incidents as are depicted in the above. If we were in his place, we would turn our back to them too. Maybe everyone in school would not. Yes, maybe they would not, but we doubt it. A dashing young man is Renaud; On fashions and art he ' s not slaud. He cuts funny capers And gets in the papers Which to him is a terrible blaud. RUDYARD IN COLLEGE The Dean he blew on his finger-nails, and the little doctors ran: " Who is the puny child at arms who comes in the guise of a man? " I ' m all o ' er-sib to Adam ' s breed that I should fall so low, " Give him a hundred and twenty hours and tell the louse to go. 1917 Colomdod nfji DEAN MILO S. KETCHUM 1917ii« mm ColoMdoan be School of JEnQineering ERE is the home of the men that do. In this important part of our University are moulded the future builders of the world; those who will create great things of steel, of concrete and of earth ; who will harness our mysterious ally, electricity, and make it satisfy the needs of men ; who will explore and change and re- create that the world may be a better place in which to live. Mayhap here is the dwelling place of countless street car conductors and floor walkers who are being trained in the rudiments of their professions : the conductors learning the intricacies of mechanisms in order that they may know how to pull the register rope; and the future trade director becoming versed in the geometric sciences that he may more easily demonstrate to customers the shortest distance between two points. Regardless of the future success of the students of this College — whether they be Goethals or De Lesseps or otherwise — the fact remains that this En- gineering School stands out first and foremost among all such schools in the State; and even here in our own University, as a student body the Engineering School has a vitality and strength which surpass that of any other power in the institution. The reason for this, perhaps, is that all good Engineers stick together, believing in the old adage " in union there is strength " in student bodies, as well as in governments and bridges. Whatever they want, they get, a fact which bodes well for individual success in their after-college careers. This is a part and a fundamental part of our University of which we are all justly proud, even though we are connected with other departments. We admire their spirit, their unity, and their loyalty. We respect them because of their capacity for work and their ability to accomplish those things which are practical and essential to us all. And we hope that it may be possible in the scheme of things for them all to fulfill a destiny several scales higher than that of the ship carpenter or the boulevard manicurist. 1917 67 j pl Colomdodtt ©tficere of tbe Combinet) lenaineers Shimeall Morrison Hodges Green HERBERT R.

Give me some music; music, moody food Of us that trade in love. This is a copy made from a photograph of our graduate Civil, compiling his first bridge. Perhaps this is his last as well as his first bridge also, because he may never have the chance again. He may be called upon to build a bridge on a tooth or be the dummy in a kind of bridge called whist, but this will hardly prepare him for building that rope walk for John D. Rottensmeller over the Sewanee river which all good Engineers must sooner or later construct. 1917 pColomdodu r Here is the learned Mechanical Engineer. See him applying the principles of Thermo- Goshdamits and E. and M. (meaning Employ Muscle) on the intricate mechanism of the wheelbarrow. He has found out whether the wheel will turn around backward or forward when force is applied to the handles in a ver- tical direction, and also that one-half of a drop of oil placed on the elbow does not necessarily cause the wheelbarrow to move. Although he has not yet learned how to spell the name of this contrivance, he does know that the " I ' is long in " Ivory, ' and that the " k ' is hard in " work. ' ' Pro ' . Jenkins — " You will find that the more you know how to do, the less time you will have to do it in; and it will be that way till the undertaker gets you, and and — and then you will have time to burn. " " O, G , dear, " the maiden cried in very great alarm, " I heard that in the game today you broke your good right arm. " He soothed her pretty fears and qualms with vehemence and haste. And just to prove the arm was good, he slipped it round her waist. Then nestling closer, E gazed up into his face: " Why, no, it isn ' t broken it ' s not even out of place. " The nearest simile we can think of to the undertakers and the casket-makers is the Dean ' s office the Monday after finals. " Bill, " and the tears flow down his good left cheek, " Be warned by my lot (which I know you will not) and learn about flunking from me. " Here is a group of deluded Fire- men playing Barber, for they are shaving the face of the Quad. It is the Engineers that we can blame for the thousand and three blisters and the forty-six cuss words which we all acquired while weeding Prexy ' s garden. We hope that by this time this year these people have learned enough about Botany to know that dandelions are like rabbits and mathematicians. i®Si 1917 To the left you may find a relic of the middle ages. He is a Sigma-Tauite, who is soon to go through the agonies of an initiation which only the builders of bevel gears and cyanide mills can ad- minister. He should be gussied up in a dress suit, but the fellow that he borrowed it from refused to let him dust off the Tri Delt front porch with it. You will also notice the socks and the shine. Great concentration will reveal where the socks leave off and the shine begins. One may never consider himself a true social lion until he has attended seven or eight Pink Teas given by the Dean in order that he may infuse some culture or pound some sense into the make-up of the more backward (than forward) members of his academy. These are great affairs which all Engi- neers look forward to missing. Didst ever gaze on such a sight? ' Tis a true and authentic portrait of a group of students working out in the open, caring not for the disgrace of such an act nor the consequences thereunto. This is, neverthe- less, a popular form of disgrace because of the many advantages it has. It permits the operator of the magnifying glass or receiver, or whatever you call it, to count the grains of powder on the nose of the lady across the campus, as well as to enjoy the method with which the female member of the beefsteak fry up on top of Flagstaff wields her nickel ' s worth of Beechnut. What, pray, is the odious part of such work as this? One of the necessities of a good Engineer is to be able to gather around a gang and discuss the seven-thirty lecture at the Curren the night before. When the girls are playing a game of base ball, it is possible that the subject of con- versation changes. Perhaps it even turns to art instead of science, though far be it from us to guess. Uncle Jack Hunter was stern and severe; He had the bad habit of frowning. But now he can play and be merry all day. Because he ' s a friend of Miss Downing. 84 1917 UIH tpl Colam oa.nll| P ™S Now it is the turn of the Chemical to get in the lime light. With much C2H5OH on his hip and several gallons of H O on his knee, he proceeds to earn a chemical livelihood by mixing together white Pb with a complex aromatic hydrocarbon and tobacco juice. The bill board in the background is not the only kind of bill with which the gentleman is afflicted, though the H O on his knee is the only species of HjO with which he is acquainted. One fact concerning this kind of man which we regret to state is that he paints not only signboards, but also the town on every occasion. Bauer— Hello, Cliff. Moyle— Why Cliff? Bauer — Because you are such a bluff. The organization known as the Oil Can Society has seriously considered combining with Akke Diki Fi. We may only hope and pray that the algebraic law which says that two negatives make a positive may hold true in this case. When the frost is on the punkin ' . And the fodder ' s in the shock. Then the Engineer takes all his jools And puts ' em into hock. He grabs the fifteen dollars. What does the man do next? He flags up to the Co-Op And buys Dean Ketchum ' s text. 1917 m 85 |] ]Colomd0 n SNOW STUFF 1917 im mm piColomdoan I DR. CHARLES N. MEADER Secretary of the Denver D ivision of the Medical School 1917 i Pfii ' m m Colomdi a nfli m Scbool of flftefcicinc m m HE School of Medicine is a house divided — ■ though not against itself. It consists of two divisions — one in Boulder which is attended by the first two classes of the school; and the Denver division which takes care of the Junior and Senior Medics. The Chair of Public Health is situated in Boulder and most of the research work confines itself to this division of the School. An addition to the faculty has occurred this year, which satisfies a long felt want. Dr. Robert C. Lewis, of the U. S. Public Health Service, has ac- cepted the new chair of Physiology. This is a change which can but be of great benefit to the school. The students who aspire to be of so much assistance to the world by the pursuit of the medical science have the softest lot of any group in the entire University. All they have to do is to go to school twelve hours a day and study the other twelve, so that they can attend their classes the next day. Those who desire to enter the Medical Profession manifest to a startling degree the spirit of altruism and self denial. Whether they ever become winners of the Nobel Prize or efficient corn doctors, they have at least devoted enough time and labor in their years of training to merit success in the highest degree. 1917 I pi Colamdoan Senior fIDebics LAWRENCE JUDAH BERNARD Phi Rho Sigma Denver Acacia University of Illinois (1) (2).

Bring my ten pound mallet, And I ' ll hit this guy a smash; Then we ' ll grind the rest up into bits And serve ' em up as hash. This is not quite the spirit that pervades the Medical School, but it is akin to it at least. The cemetery that has not been robbed has the good fortune to be too many miles away. The cat that escapes the onslaughts of the night-prowling Medics is some feline. The dead man that does not have his corpse mutilated had the foresight to order himself cremated. Hence it may easily be seen that the Me dies, with their picks and shovels, their butcher knives and meat saws, their hammers and chisels, their poison bottles and their charming manners are a bad lot. If you feel yourself slipping and come to the conclusion that the sexton is going to get you in the near future, buy yourself a railroad ticket to Louisville and boot the pail there where you may rest in peace. Dr. Walker- Why are you late to class? Young Miss Doctor-to-be -Why am I late? Dr. Walker- Yes, why are you late? Y. M. D. T. B. Well, Doctor, you see, class began before I got here. The Boulder Medic School is placed right close up to Old Gamble, so when an athlete breaks his neck, for him the studes may scramble. Last Fall Walt Spring fell on his nose and knocked it kitty-wampus, and so the Medics flocked to him from all parts of the Campus. They laid his bruised proboscis in a plaster paris cast, then they placed him in a straight-waist and tied him hard and fast. The little Medics buzzed around and offered their advice, except the girls who heard him swear and thought he wasn ' t nice. In just about four minutes poor Walt had had enough, because along side football, these men were awful rough. Now Captain Pete gave them a treat and got a dark black eye. It wasn ' t bad yet all the Meds swore he was going to die. They gave him forty treatments every quarter of an hour, but Peter ' s optic got so sick, he fled their evil power. So use your cleats, you ath-a-letes as round the field you ramble; woe to the " bo " that stubs his toe while playing out on Gamble. 1 i Did you ever hear of Jesse James? Well here he is, just as he was strung up so many years ago. His old friend and compatriot. Doc Simonson, who recently held himself up on the bridge, is shown embracing him fondly as he did in the days of yore. However, there is a rumor afloat that this is not Jesse James at all but a skeleton out of Doc ' s closet. Stephen Rothwell from the mirror, licked the mercury all off. Thinking in an awful hurry it would cure the Whooping Cough — At the funeral, Mrs. Rothwell said to Mrs. Spray, " For Steve, when Mercury went down, it was a chilly day. " Dr. Ashley (to trembling Medic) — How is the yellow fever transmitted? P. S. (meaning poor student) — By the mosquito, sir. Dr. A. — And how should you guard against it? P. S.- By disinfection, sir. Dr. A. Disinfection of what? P. S. — Of the mosquito. Dr. A. — -Ah, yes, I see; give the mosquito a nice warm bath both morning and evening. Correct. Next! An old negress walked into the Dispensary in Denver and asked for a nickel ' s worth of insect powder. " Why, Auntie, that much isn ' t worth wrapping up, " said Dr. Streamer. " Who-all said ah wanted any wrapping up done to that there powder? You-all just sprinkle it down mah back and don ' t you worry about no wrapping up. " Porter! The saw, the nicked-up ax. The augur and the bits. For we ' re going to operate today On a guy what ' s got the fits. We ' ll tie him down with cord and rope, We ' ll pump him full of hop. We ' ll wash him off with laundry soap, Till he ' s dead we ' ll never stop. We ' ll smoke three fat and black cigars. Then take a swig of rye. We ' ll laugh and joke as we fond ' .y poke The poor nut in the eye. So ring up the morgue, bring on a hearse Get a coffin dull and gray. Then steal his watch and pinch his purse For we operate today. 19171 Colomdoan We believe in sanitation even if force is necessary. Here is the picture of a member of the Univer- sity who is in the excellent habit of taking a bath the first of May every year whether he needed it or not. Hence the purity squad got busy, copped the guy as he was starting out fussing, and compelled him to make love to a tub full of H,0. The squad however were almost compelled to the belief that the tub contained HjS about the moment the picture was taken. The Doctors stood by the patient ' s bed, Then one of them sadly spoke: " No hope, no hope, " he slowly said, " The son-of-a-gxm is broke. " The Lawyer dreams of his cases and trials. With the spectators trembling and pale. The Engineer thinks of foundations and piles. And of bridges that bring in the kale. But the old Medic thinks, as he smokes and he drinks. And over his knives he putters, Of an interest or more in a big coffin store And a hospital full to the gutters. m The Doctor faced his class demure. And asked a stude this question, " How much dope will it take to cure A gink who has indigestion? " " Ten grains, " the stude piped up in glee And settled back to snore. But later changed from ten to three In a voice that shook the floor. " Too late, too late, " the Doc replied. As he looked at his watch of brass, " Ten minutes ago the poor stiff died, " And he turned again to his class. 1917 I Scbool ot Xaw UR widely known School of Law. under th skillful hand of its capable Dean, is en- gaged in the laudable pursuit of fitting men to fill the ranks of the legal profession. It also, perhaps, is training our future business princes and our country ' s most notorious shysters. Yet the future of the students of the school lies with the in- dividuals and not with the school itself. As a College it ranks among the highest. It is a member of the American Association of Law Schools, and in our minds is one of the foremost members. Since the time that the requirements for entrance were raised to two years of College credits, it has ceased to be the abode of the idler and the soft-course boaster, and has become one of the schools where constant application and endless work are necessary to the suc- cessful pursuit of a degree. The faculty has been immensely strengthened in the past year. Dean Arthur of the Washburn College of Law has been secured to take the pro- fessorship of Property, an addition to the faculty which has proved a splendid move. Professor Folsom has given up his football activity and his practice in order that he might devote all his time and energy to his classes. Professor Reed has also abandoned his practice with the purpose in view of making his Professorship his sole activity. Whether we find in future years that the students of the Law School have become Daniel Websters, pettyfoggers, Henry Fords, or bookkeepers in a five- cent store, we can do no other than thank or excuse the Law School because we know that it stands among the foremost and has given its best effort to the development of legal lights. 1917 jj olot ftodtl ©fficers of tbe Senior Xaws Smith King Henderson BRYANT SMITH President WILLIAM KING Vice President JOHN HENDERSON Secretary and Treasurer Xaw formal Committee HARRISON FIELD, Chairman COPE HANLEY MORTIMER SULLIVAN 1917 100 ©fficere of tbc Junior Xaws Hanley Stratton O ' Neill JOHN McCANN President COPE J.

" 108 1917 be Scbool ot l barmac HEN one has taken his first casual glance at the exterior of the building in which the Pharmacy School is situated, he will prob- ably and very naturally have the impres- sion that the school is small, struggling, starved. But after the same person has made the acquaintance of the Dean of the school, its curriculum, and the personnel and attitude of its student body, the im- pression is at once changed and the school as an institution assumes a new importance. Although there is much military enthusiasm mixed up with the study of herbs and their products, it can hardly be called a defect but rather an advantage. From the martial air of the Dean and the invariability of the students ' salute when he draws near, we may easily surmise that the place is run according to a scheme in which discipline and knowledge stand in positions of equal prominence. The most peculiar characteristic of this school is the complexity of its courses. There are Seniors and Seniors, yet only one man is a four year man, a few are three year men, and most of them are two year graduates. When a person says he is a Senior in the Pharmacy School, do not believe him. He may be anything from a high school postgraduate to a hoary headed Sigma Xi Professor of Pharmacology. It is a bad plan to let appearances be deceiving as the druggist in Niwot said after he had spent his good money for the gold brick; and particularly as it regards the Pharmacy School. It is a growing, thriving department which will sometime in the future without doubt have as many students as Troop D has members, a fact which will be the result of the same thing, the activity, the enthusiasm and the courage of its Dean. 1917 m CHARLES HAROLD WELLES, Ph.

The object of attention of both sides as they stood thus was a line of harmless sacks of grass strewn across the field midway between them. At the report of a pistol, the opposing forces charged on the row of sacks in the middle. The result was anything but friendly when two men from opposite sides reached the sack at the same time. One man would perhaps get away but before he would be able to throw into high gear, some one from the other side would make a flying tackle and a heart- to-heart tussel would result. When it is considered that some twenty such exhibitions were in progress at the same time, all the known plays in football were being executed at such a rate that the eye became tired trying to follow them. A Keystone slap-stick comedy could not exhibit more action, as shirts, tennis shoes, mud and smears of blood became more and more in profusion. But as one followed the action of both sides, there was little doubt but that the second year men were getting the worst of the encounter. Sack after sack was added to the Frosh arsenal and was carefully guarded by a husky contingent from that rank. Just as the action began to slacken somewhat, the crack of the pistol announced that the battle was over. After a count of the sacks was made twenty-eight were in possession of the Frosh to but twelve for the Sophs. A riot took place at one end while gloom settled over the other. pColomdoan THE PUSHBALL CONTEST With the ball, a six-foot inflated affair, in the middle of the field and both sides ten yards behind, crouching low, a pistol spoke, and the war was on. Both sides hit the ball together, and there it remained immovable. Only for a second however, for Frosh and Sophs alike began to attack the rear of their opponents ' forces. Thus relieved the ball was raised above the oppo- nents ' heads and with a merry bound it went dancing over the Frosh. Gradually the ball began to move forward, for the Frosh were fighting hard to regain their lost ground. Inch by inch the ball was slowly yielding, when with an uprorious yell of " all together Frosh, " the ball again shot in the air and was over the heads of the Sophs. But fate it seems was against them, for a husky Soph lunged his weight against the ball and it bounded back over the gained territory. Across the field struggled the mass of some sixty badly tattered individuals, the ball still in ad- vance until it rolled out of bounds. Placed in the middle of the field and with three more minutes to play, the Frosh crouched low. At the crack of the pistol, perhaps before the crack of the pistol, the Frosh had hit the ball hard and high . Up it went over the heads of the Sophs and down the field. When it finally came to rest, the Frosh had regained their lost territory and had annexed a good margin of their enemy ' s. The Sophs, now winded, could only hold their own until the ten minutes were up. Two fresh squads were again set in motion, but the result of their ten minute encounter ended as the first. Thus youth proved mightier than experience, and so the Frosh won the annual Pushball Contest from the Sophs.

ROPES COWBOYS IN 5 MINUTES AND KEEPS THEM ROPED Boulder, Colo., Oct. 15, 1915— Gamble Field. Today we had our first chance to size up the Varsity in the game with Wyoming. Colorado ' s speed and weight appeared to be too much for the Cowboy crew and they were taken into camp for a 30 to score. Only early season blunders and penalties prevented the Varsity from scoring more. The Wyoming men played fast football but were far too light to withstand the smashing attack of our men. The game was characterized by the brilliant backfield work of Pete Nelson, Ham Cooper, Art Talbott and Eddie Evans. Pete was field captain and showed the same fight and judgment that distinguished his playing last year. Ham Cooper surprised the stands by several spectacular runs, scoring two of the Varsity touch- downs. i The line, the heaviest in three years, tore hole after hole in the Wyoming line. It appears to be well balanced, and shows evidence of becoming a formidable football machine. One of the features of the game was Spring ' s Princeton from the 45-yard line. Kemp made the third touchdown but soon afterwards sprained his ankle, and was compelled to retire from the game. Corthell and Craig starred for Wyoming, the former breaking up many of the Varsity combinations. m 1917 FARMERS MOW DOWN VARSITY WELL-OILED MOWER DOES DEADLY DAMAGE Boulder, Colo., Oct. 9 Gamble Field. It was to the tune of 23 to 6 that the Aggies beat the Varsity for the second time in the history of the school. The Fort Collins aggregation played football of a caliber which has not been seen for years this early in the season. Their aspirations for the title are not without foundation. However the score tells but half the story, for the Colorado eleven was dangerously close to scoring several times. Spring barely missed a Princeton; at another time the Aggie line held on their five yard line. The game ended with the ball on the Aggie ten yard line. The kicking due! between Nelson and Klemnedson was the feature of the game. Pete maintained his reputation in this department and the odds were in his favor. Nye of the Farmers made several spectacular end runs. Spring was the bulwark of the line on the defensive and many times broke up the Aggie attack. Colorado spirit was dominant today. Although certain of defeat, the rooters faced the music and were cheering as loudly as ever when the whistle blew and Colorado had gone down to defeat before the upstate eleven. The team was disappointed in the outcome, but they anxiously await the C. C. game. THE BIG A 1917 132 HORRIBLE JUNGLE MASSACRE TIGERS DEVOUR 11 MEN Boulder, Colo., Oct. 25, 1915. Gamble Field.- The Tigers started off with a roar and a rush. When the dust had cleared away they had rolled up 44 points against the Varsity. The speedy open field running, and the forward passes were responsible for this score, these factors being too much for the Colorado defense. Only at intervals did the local team play the same form of ball as their rivals. The C. C. men varied their tactics, using various plays in rapid succession and executing them too swiftly for the Varsity to break them up. There was no quitting. The Colorado men fought hard and constantly, but lacked the team work to stop the furious attacks. The overhead tactics bothered them and it was by means of these that C. C. made many gains. The game itself was rather disappointing, but there were many bright features of individual play- ing. Pete was forced to kick almost the instant he received the ball, yet his kicks outdistanced those of Davis. Tank Walter and Walt Spring were in- jured in the first half and gave place to Chapman and Newman. Garry got away for two long runs which aroused our hopes for a possible score. The crowd was the biggest ever assembled on Gamble Field, and the rooting for the losing team was never surpassed by the cheering for a winning eleven. Both the team and the rooters were game to the last ditch, showing the elements of true sportsmanship and game losers. 1917 1 m. i W M C Olot dOdtl PLEASURE TRIP ENDS IN WRECK TRAIN DERAILED BY BLOOD- THIRSTY MORMONS Salt Lake City, Oct. 28, 1915. — Cummings Field. — Straight foot- ball coupled with skill and speed man- ifested its superiority in the game against Utah today when Colorado met defeat on the Utah gridiron by a score of 35 to 3. The Silver and Gold team made substantial gains time and time again through brilliant passing by Tank Walters, but seemed to lack the punch when within striking distance. Utah scored first after the first ten minutes of play when Ward of Utah carried the ball the full length of the field for a touchdown. A second touchdown was scored by the Mor- mons in the second quarter after hard earned gains by the Gardiner brothers. Toward the end of the quarter Colo- rado took a brace and Nelson booted a Princeton from the thirty-yard line, making Colorado ' s first and only score of the game. During the last half of the game Utah made her remaining scores through long gains by the backfield. Colorado ' s fighting spirit was shown throughout every minute of play and the result was a much harder fought contest than the score indicates. 134 1917 Denver, Colorado, Nov. 13, 1915. — Union Park. — Chance seems to have been the deciding factor in our game with the Miners on November 13, where the final score was 13 to 6 against us. Twice Colo- rado was on the point of scoring and each time this mysterious force intervened; first, the end of the period spoiled our chances, and second, an unlucky fumble ruined what looked to be a sure score. The Colorado line worked with machine- like precision, showing their best form of the season. With few exceptions they Blown Up by Mines! continually blocked the famous Minnesota shift of the Miners and showed splendid aptitude in thwarting trick plays. The Colorado backfield starred at every stage of the game. Walters ran 65 yards down the field when he recovered a Mines fumble and made our touchdown possible. Pete ' s generalship was evident throughout, and Talbot and Chapman showed well on defensive work. Trick plays and line bucks made the scores for the Ore Diggers, Hinman and FuUaway showing the best form. All the men were in prime condition and showed the results of their hard training by their ability to last through the entire game. 1917 P Colomdoan MINISTERS CONVERT TEAM COLORADO HITS SAWDUST TRAIL SEVEN TIMES PHOTO BY COURTESY DENVER POST Denver, Colo., Nov. 20, 1915 — Union Park. — The last conference game of the season has ended in the score of 7-0 with the ministers drawing the long end. As both teams ran on the field it was impossible to forecast the result. All the previous dope and the appearance of the teams pointed toward a close contest. The heavy wind that came up in the early afternoon meant an exciting game on account of possible fumbles and unexpected recoveries. In the main the game was an exhibition of straight football with few open plays. After a fumble, followed by a wonderful recovery, a fifty yard run and a spectacular recovery by Chapman, the Ministers pushed over the line for the only score of the game. The D. U. men made the kick good totaling their seven points. Colorado brought the ball to the seven yard line, and in attempting a final play, lost it on a fumble. Spring and Talbott were given opportunities to kick Princetons but the wind drove them both wild. The whole team put all they had into the game; their playing merited more than a defeat. 1917 Colorado Crew Drowned in Seattle ADMIRAL NELSON GOES DOWN FIGHTING Seattle, Wash., Nov. 25, 1915 — Denny Field. — Washington finished their eighth consecutive season today under the direction of their able coach, Gilmore Dobie. The day was rainy and windy, causing the field to be muddy, and the ball was always slippery, conditions which were rather new to the Colorado men. The northwest eleven, accustomed to such circumstances, started out with so overwhelming a number of trick plays and combinations that they had no trouble in soon rolling up several touchdowns. It is no wonder, say our men, that the other coast elevens refuse to play this team led by the " canny Scotchman. " Colorado was constantly on the defense and Pete was forced to kick whenever the Varsity got the ball. His booting was remarkable, surpassing the Washington man. In the third quarter Colorado came back with such a strong defense that it seemed as if there might still be a chance; during this quarter they held their rivals scoreless but fell down again on the last stretch. Those who were on the side lines reported that the team played their best game of the season and that the University could indeed be proud of the Coloradoans who gave their husky op- ponents so hard a fight. i m Colamdoa nlll i COLORADO ' S 1917 I plColomdodn FOOTBALL SQUAD I i 1917 PETE NELSON, Captain LEFT HALF Captain " Pete ' was a " warrior ' of renown. He twisted his toe and sent those long, dangerous spirals. He played like a demon but kept that winning smile, which his op- ponents watched — ill at ease. But Nelson ' s football days with the Silver and Gold are ended. His work has been well done. No man in Colorado ' s football history has ever played a headier, steadier four years of football. He will be keenly missed. WALT SPRING TACKLE Walt has been the most consist- ent hard player which the team has had. He has fought nobly, tackled hard, and had the outcome of the game to heart more than any other member of the team. No one can say that he has not deserved his election to next year ' s captaincy, and his place on the All Rocky Mountain. " TANK " WALTER QUARTERBACK With his expert passing, his speed and his headwork, Tank has made himself a valuable man to Varsity teams. If it had not been for his broken leg and his various other broken members, there can be no doubt that he would have re- mained on the All Rocky Mountain team where he was placed his first year. HAM COOPER HALFBACK Ham ' s perseverance in remaining on the squad for five years has en- deared him to all Colorado Fans. He is not a particularly brilliant player, yet his pluck, determination and loyalty has more than made up for whatever else he may have lacked. 141 Gerry was a surprise to the coach as well as to the fans. Before his football career is over he should make a name for himself in the back- field. He has already earned the reputation of being a certain open field runner. Several times he got away for long runs, bringing the fans to their feet. FRANK ROBERTSON TACKLE As tackle Frank kept the vet- erans hustling to keep ahead of him. This is his first year as a reg- ular and we regret that this must be his last, for he is senior " plumb- er. " His tackling was hard and certain. The way he brought down that Mines man was one of the features of the football year. WILLIAM GREIG GUARD Greig, like several more of the squad, had a hard time finding himself. But the end of the season proved that he has the stuff in him and that it will take a little time to get it out. He is, however, one who has never had trouble in having his scholarship card signed, which goes to show he is bringing brains and brawn upon speaking terms. DUDLEY RANDALL GUARD Randall played the game hard and stuck with it in spite of broken noses and such trifles. He plays a conservative, reliable game at this position and will assuredly be one of the regulars that will make things lively next season. " Randy " is but a sophomore, so watch him for the next two years. ' ::zs im iSM i3i iSii WiSS3!m i= Colomdoan EDDIE EVANS QUARTERBACK Eddie is little but he gets there just the same. He speeds till he is caught, and then slips through the arms of his tacklers. He substitutes quality for bulk. Speed counteracts weight. You just feel that Eddie Evans loves football. He plays with " Pep. " He is a star in the making. HERMAN ESCHENBURG GUARD " Butsch, " as he is known to his teammates, made an impression — on the bodies of those he assailed this year. " Who is that guy stop- ping those smashes, ' each succeed- ing team would ask. Herman never swore or smiled. He kept his shoulder to the wheel, his head to the ground and sawed wood. He is steady, slow but sure, and has that quality which is only truly de- fined by that word which is dear to the hearts of all football men — " guts. " AL BLAKE GUARD It was not until " Pesky " Gar- wood ' s memorable speech to the men of the University that AI donned a suit and reported to P. I. After having been out of the game for over two years it was hard for him to get back into shape. He made it, however, and plugged up a hole at one side of the pivot po- sition in time for the clash with the Tigers. Blake has two more years ahead of him, and a good stock of avoirdupois to his credit, both of which are indeed promising. FRANK CROTTS HALFBACk Frank began to hit his stride while on the " Frosh " team. This year he made a showing in confer- ence circles. He also had a little hard luck which incapacitated him for most of the season. s iaSSSiajgS JSii Colomdodti m m WIBUR ADAMS RIGHT END After a phenomenal run in Prep, football, Wilbur entered the University and showed up well on the freshman team. Last year was his first Varsity appearance, and for some unknown reason did not seem to find himself until about the close of the season. However, we do not con- sider him a " dead one ' yet by any means, because he has two more years ahead of him. VICTOR ADAMS CENTER " Vic " kept true to predictions and had a little the better of his brother. He always caught his signals sure and snapped the ball quickly and accurately. There were few if any times when the Varsity lost ground on his work. This was also " Vic ' s " first year on the Varsity line. ROBERT NEWMAN TACKLE Bob was also a new man this year. However, he stuck with the game all season, and by the time of the Seattle trip had earned the much-prized " C. " His hard, consistent plugging and grit will make him a strong contende r for next season ' s regular line-up. EUGENE HARVEY END " Brick " was a find at end this fall and after this year ' s experience will make a valuable man for end next year. He played a fast, sure game at end and in several games was favorably noted by " P. I. " Brick is a sophomore and hence two or three seasons ahead of him. 1917 144 Views of the Team on Seattle Trip 1917 145 Colomdodtt IM5 H CQ H O O Z en a: Uh 146 1917 BASKETBALL j jilColomap n Colamd0a tt!|i m i m m i m i COACH JAMES N. ASHMORE m 148 1917 Colomdoan Bashetball In the first conference game of the season the Varsity defeated the Farmer aggregation 27-23. This victory caused such an exhibition of enthusiasm and " pep " that the old main bell was kept busy for two hours. The defensive tactics of the Silver and Gold quintet harassed and bothered the Aggies, which seemed to lead them to unnecessary roughness; this alone gave us nine points on fouls, thanks to H. Beresford ' s accurate shooting. Each regular except Dunn caged two field goals, but his smother more than made up for lack of shooting. The Miners couldn ' t stop the Varsity five for they cleaned up 32-20. The outcome of the game was evident from the start. In a few minutes the machine -like precision of the Colorado team began working smoothly and they had a lead of 19-13 at the end of the first half. Coach Ashmore ' s six footers had the edge of the Miners, since the latter team was composed mostly of short men. Twenty-one fouls were called, 13 on Mines and the rest on Colorado. The superior guarding of the Varsity combined with the shoot- ing of Howard Beresford were the deciding factors of the game. After a scrappy contest the Varsity lost their first game to D. U. The outcome was a surprise to the fans, for Colorado was doped to win. The game was loosely played, both sides missing numerous easy shots from the floor. Fouls were many. It was because of these that the Ministers were gaining at the end of the first half. Bob McGraw starred for the home team, shoot- ing three field goals. After a sensational tie game, Colorado finally nosed out the Tigers 24-22. The first half was fast and brilliant, ending with Colorado leading 13-12. The next half was nerve-racking. First one side and then the other forged ahead, i s m m 1917 " mmm Colomdoan neither one having a lead of more than two points. The second half ended 22-22 and in the extra five minutes Howard threw the deciding basket. Dur- ing this extra time two fouls were called on the Varsity, but C. C. failed to profit by them. Peterson collided with Captain Dunn ' s eye; Sears then re- placed him at guard. H. Beresford again starred, making 16 of the Var- sity ' s 24 points. In the fastest, most exciting game of the season, Colorado wrested vic- tory from the Tigers for a second time this year, winning from them by a score of 26-20. The lead alternated back and forth throughout the game with C. C. leading ten seconds before the second half was up; then Al Walker tied the score by dropping a difficult one through the hoop. In the extra five minutes, DuVol, Burke and Walker each got a field goal while the Var- sity guards held the Tigers scoreless. Every Colorado man was a star; DuVol shot ' em from any position; Howard garnered eight points and the others played ball of equal caliber ; Liz Beresford played his best game of the season ; his breaking up of play after play was one of the features of the game. D. U. seems to have our goat, for they again won by the narrow margin of 19-18. It was a heart-breaking contest with the Ministers keeping the lead all the way. In the last few minutes, DuVol shot two long ones and made the score 18-19 in their favor. The last two minutes were the hottest of any witnessed this year; several times the Varsity almost slipped one in the basket. The D. U. team seemed to concentrate on Howard Beresford and they kept after him so effectively that he failed to register one field goal. Liz and Mum followed the ball so hard that the referee mistook their efforts and " canned " them both from the game. In the last game of the season the Aggies fell before the Varsity, 27-20. The game was slow at the start but gained momentum before the first half was up. The Aggies took the lead at first, but before the half the Varsity was ahead. It was rough and fast at intervals with the Aggies losing points on fouls. DuVol threw four long ones and Howard got three. This victory tied Colorado and C. C. for the championship, since each lost two games and won six. PAUL DUNN GUARD " Mum " captained the team this year and was one of the fastest and scrappiest guards of the season. He never let the referee sUp anything over on Colorado and his impetuosity almost got him " in bad " several times. Mum will be sorely missed and it will be hard to find a man who follows the ball as hard as he does. HOWARD BERESFORD FORWARD Howard played one of the fastest, sur- est, cleanest games of any man in this year ' s conference. Game after game his long sure arms dropped the ball through the hoop, both field goals and free throws. His all-around ability was demonstrated in the C. C. game when he played a star game at forward and then at guard. LESTER BERESFORD GUARD Liz played his best game of college bas- ketball this year. He is a fast and close guard, the kind that harasses and rattles the other man. In the second C. C. game he distinguished himself by the manner in which he time and time again broke up the Tiger plays and managed to get the ball back down the field. ROBERT McGRAW CENTER Bob ' s six feet plus more than once gave us just the added impetus necessary for victory. He plays a hard, scrappy game at center and always manages to keep his opponent well in hand. Bob had the pleasure of knowing that he was one of those who trimmed the Tigers in two successive games. 1917 151 Colomd0d ttif|i mti;ii;iinii;iiiiii[Hfli afB AUSTIN DuVOL FORWARD This is DuVol ' s first appearance on the Varsity quintet. He seems to care for nothing except to go aft er the ball and get it; often his reckless plunging for it would make the fans marvel to think that he would come up and continue playing. He distinguished himself particularly in the last three games of the season by shooting several long ones from almost the center of the floor. ALBERT WALKER CENTER Al played center, alternating with Mc- Graw. He plays a speedy game and man- ages to keep the opposing center to but a few shots for the basket. Al will be re- membered as the man who shot the bas- ket in the last ten seconds of the C. C. game, tying the score. He is a Junior and will be one of the fastest centers in the next year ' s conference. H. THOMAS SEARS GUARD Tommy is not only a close guard, but also follows the ball close enough to drop one in the ring once or so during the game. He is a sophomore, and from his work of this season will be regular for next year. From Tommy ' s " fighting face " as he sits in tense excitement wait- ing for his turn to go in, one can plainly see how the game is going. JOHN BURKE FORWARD Johnny is a little big man and plays a brilliant offensive game at forward. He is a hard scrappy man on the squad. Johnny has now made two Cs in bas- ketball and if he keeps up at the present rate should earn a couple more. Mi Colam 0 n BASEBALL m i tgj;.ci a 1917 M m M 1S3 ffllColomdo tt COACH JAMES N.

P Cotomdodttil MW ' The Baseball Season in Review I The first two games of the season were played with Sacred Heart College; the first game was lost to the score of 10-7, but in the second one, Milroy, Carnahan, and Bob Smith pitched a no-hit game, while the Varsity garnered nine runs. The first intercollegiate game was with D. U. on April the twenty-ninth. The Ministers were in the middle of their schedule and hence in full season trim while the Varsity was just beginning. Possibly this fact may partially account for the ten to five defeat. Milroy as pitcher started out strong, but met his Waterloo in the second inning. Wells went in the box and held the D. U. men to only three hits during the remaining seven innings. Wallace began his reputation as a dangerous man with the willow by managing to get four bingles out of five attempts. The game furnished several close and exciting plays which tended to keep up the pep the full nine innings. In a hard fought pitchers ' duel the Aggies finally got the long end of the score, two to one. The game was featureless, except for the work of Tucker for the Aggies and Russ Wells for the Varsity. The day was cold and windy, thus making the fielding ragged and uncertain. Evans and Cush not only managed to get a few points in the track meet which was pulled off before the game, but both played a hard, steady game. Russ pitched good ball, but did not have much support. For seven long innings big Mac held the Tigers scoreless, but finally they managed to sneak a couple of bunts thru the infield and these netted them a run in each of the last two innings. The Tigers fought hard for they ever seem to have the greatest desire to beat the University particularly in baseball when Mac does the pitching. In the seventh Bob drove a long one out towards center and before the ball was found he had made the circuit for our only run. Davis pitched a fair game but lacked the necessary support to keep the Colorado men off the bases. 1917 Colom odttlli The Colorado men slipped one over on the Preachers and carried off the game to the tune of 10-6. Wells started the game for the Varsity, but broke his finger in the sixth inning. Sullivan replaced him, but McGraw went in before the end of that in- ning. Bob had them going south, for twelve of them fanned the air for strike-outs. Umpire Cassidy ordered Coach Ashmore to leave the grounds when the latter ven- tured to question a decision. This seemed to give the Varsity the extra pep and with the score tied at the end of the ninth, made four runs in the tenth inning. The Aggies were unable to stop the Colorado team for they were taken into camp by a seven to four score. The game was fast and exciting and many good plays were pulled off. Wells al- lowed only four hits and fanned twelve; Tucker, the Aggies ' mainstay, granted seven hits, four free rides, and along with this had uncertain support. The two games with the Miners had been postponed so long that they were finally called off, due to the early commencement at Golden. Hence the Varsity ' s chances for the championship were lost, the Ministers getting it on a percentage basis. However, the last game was chalked up to the Varsity for the terrible Tigers were beaten three to nothing. Bob McGraw did the pitching and he made seventeen Tigers take the whiff route. The game was not marked by many spectacular plays as Bob held C. C. down so tightly that they did not have a chance to do much. This seemed to be the game the team had been waiting for, as all played their best game of the season. Much credit is due to Captain Tank Walter for his efficient handling of the team; and it is due to the combined efforts of Coach Ashmore and Tank that the team came back so strongly after the first two defeats early in the season. There is every reason to believe that the championship re- sult might have been different if the rain had not caused the postponement of the two games with the Ore-Diggers. 1917 Colomdoan FREDERIC WALTER CENTERFIELD Captain. As captain, " Tank " piloted the team to an even break in the conference games. From the center garden he cut off many an ambi- tious base runner by the power of his good right arm. Walter has been on the squad two years and played his last game in a Varsity uniform. He owns a football C. ROBERT McGRAW PITCHER " Bob ' pitched when the condition of his arm permitted, and covered first base the rest of the time. On the mound he performed in fine shape; at first he gave a classy exhibition of handling wide throws. McGraw takes a mighty swing at the ball and frequently connects for long drives. FRANK HICKEY SHORTSTOP " Hick " was a new man on the team in 1915, but he fielded his position like a veteran. He ex- celled on hard-hit grounders and got his throws away fast. Hickey will be a valuable player next season with one year ' s Varsity experience behind him. 1917 Colomdod nfli BLAINE WALLACE LEFTFIELD Before coming to the University Wallace played four years of ball at North Denver. In his Fresh- man year here a broken ankle forced him to give up for that year. In the next two years " Pink " developed into one of the heaviest hitters on the team. This will make his third year in the out- field. ANTHONY CUSH THIRD BASE " Tony " played regularly at third and guarded his sack in an efficient manner. He was fast on bunts and beat out many quick throws to first. Cush won his letter last year- his first appearance on the diamond. He also wears a track C. HOWARD BERESFORD FIRST BASE " Berey " held down the initial sack for the Varsity when McGraw was on the firing line and acquitted himself creditably. His timely stick work in the C. C. game at Boulder was an impor- tant factor in winning the victory. Howard earned his letter in baseball last spring and in addition possesses a basketball C. RUSS WELLS PITCHER It was a bright idea of Coach Ashmore ' s which caused him to try Wells at a little pitching. Being a " sub " catcher on the team the year pre- vious, it appeared that the same was to occur again last year. Ashmore tried him at a little pitching in practice and knew immediately he had a " find. " ■ 1917 TRACK m i 1917 " m X tW ' lJr filColamdodnitt " i ZLrack Season At the indoor meet held at the Auditorium in Denver on the sixth of March, Fate, Luck, or whatever you may call it, turned against the Varsity and we were defeated for the first time in this branch of track activity. The famous relay team lost, due to a tumble and a mix-up at one of the starts. The Tigers showed up strong and got away with nine firsts; Mac Davis jumped six feet two, a new indoor conference record. The final tallies were as follows: Colorado College 66 University of Colorado 29 Colorado Aggies 14 Denver University 14 Mines 1 The first intercollegiate meet of the season was held on Gamble field April 26, when the Varsity cinder speeds nosed out the Ministers by a score of 62 to 55. The contest was neck and neck until the relay team our old standby won their race and also won us the meet. D. U. got eight firsts to our seven, but they did not have the men who could cop the seconds and thirds, which decided the outcome in this case. It was on May the third that the Colorado men took the Farmers in for 61 to 56; as the score indicates, the meet was close and exciting up to the finish, but our eight firsts against the Aggie six were the factors which gave us the meet. The relay was forfeited rather than force some of the men to run who were in poor condition. 1917 plColgmdodn The Tigers again fooled the dopesters and beat us on the seventh of May 62 ' 4 to 56 2. The meet was one of the most excit- ing that was ever run off at the College. It was one of those events when the stands were kept uncertain until the last as to the final result. Cline ' s leg was still bothering him and he entered nothing but the relay. Captain Clarence won the century and tied the C. C. man in the two-twenty. Walt Spring heaved the hammer and the discus for a couple of firsts. As usual, Lanky Bill Fleming won the mile, but failed to win the two mile, being forced to drop out on the sev- enth lap. The relay team came back with a vengeance and had no trouble in annexing it. Then came the big conference meet held in Denver when Colorado was forced to bow to the C. C. Tigers after a hard fighting contest. Four new records were made; Bill Fleming did the mile in 4:34 3-5; Raymond of Utah ran the 220 in 21 2-5, coming within 1-5 of a second of the world ' s record for colleges. The Mormon quartet won the relay in the fast time of 3:27, the time made by the Colorado relay team at the St. Louis meet the year previous. Davis of C. C. made the fourth record when he boosted the shot 42 feet and 4 inches. Spring hurled the discus 125 feet, a new Varsity record, but even this would not win him a first.

Time, 52 1-5. 1917 166 Colomdodti w CLARENCE IRELAND This year Colorado loses one of her very best in the person of Clar- ence Ireland. Himself a record sprinter, he guided the team through a successful year as their captain, winding up a career on the cinder path which has seldom been equal- ed in this part of the country. He has been one of our best, and we are loath to part with him. CARL CLINE Little can be said about Cline which everyone does not know al- ready. He holds Interscholastic and Collegiate records in the 220 and 440 dashes, and ties all pre- vious records in the 100 yard dash. Cline won recognition for the University by taking a place in the 440 at the Missouri conference, and was a member of the relay team that did the work at Missouri. Cline captains the team this year. BILL FLEMING Bill has run three years for the Varsity and at present holds the conference record for the mile. Bill is superstitious, too; he never washes his track suit until the close of each season and never enters a race without his rabbit ' s foot. His Denver Medic work keeps him out this year. 166 EDWARD J. KNOWLES Though Ed is no windstorm and has never broken any records to bits, yet he has always been a hard trier and has been consistent in his work. As a hurdler he has made them all hustle in his three years as a Varsity hurdler. i jllColomdnan WALTER SPRING This is the third year that Walt has taken the big hunks of lead in hand and made his competitors and the innocent audience tremble. If there had not been world beaters in the conference, he could have always been depended upon to bring home the smoked pig. As it was, he has succeeded in collect- ing his full share of the Varsity ' s points. LESLIE LECRON " Ike " started running the 440 in his second year at the Univer- sity and has been running it in record time ever since. He was one of the men that made up the relay team which won first place at Missouri two years ago. He has always been one member of the team whom the Colorado rooters could depend on to do his lap in record time. This is his third year on the path-. TERRY DUCE Terry has wound up several years of hard work on the long dis- tances with this last season. He should be given a great deal of cred- it for his tenacity and his courage in several years of running the hard- est of all races, the two mile. He has not made of himself a John Paul Jones, but the reason is not be- cause he has not tried. ANTHONY J. CUSH Tony stepped up from the ranks of the High School sprinters and surprised them all by copping the broad jump in the conference, and several short races in dual meets. If he could only be half as fast with his studies as he is with his heels, we might depend on him to be a consistent performer. 1917 Colomdoan JOHN BUCKLEY Buck has been our only reliable high jumper in his two years on the team, and, until the advent of Reed last year, was the old standby as well in the pole vault. He has de- veloped wonderfully, and has al- ways been a most reliable point winner in both events. JIM REED A very valuable addition to the track squad was brought about when Jim appeared for practice last spring. His specialty is pole vaulting, at which he demonstrated his ability by tying for first place in the conference last spring. As this was his first year, something big can be expected in the way of honors for the Silver and Gold from ROBERT ALLEN Bob proved in his first year on the Varsity to be worthy to be the fourth member of the far-famed relay team. At the four-forty he is the stuff, giving us all high hope that he will soon be competent to take the place of the great quarter milers who have preceded him here. 1 168 MINOR SPORTS m I I JCotamdodtt Cross-Country Left to right— Sawhill, Beard, Feasel, Duggan, Reimer, Greenwalt, Ryan, WoUe (Coach) Cross-Country, although classified under the heading of minor Athletics, demands as long and as strenuous training as any of the so-called major sports. The team trained hard and faithfully this past fall and then had only one opportunity to test their speed. That was the meet with the Aggies on October ninth. It was a hard, fast race, but the Farmers managed to clean up. Every year now more interest is being manifested in cross-country. With the co-operation of the student body this sport should become another one in which Colorado will lead the field. tW! -} 170 1917 Farrington, McCann, (Manager) Scott Probst Wolf, (Captain) The tennis bugs have been continuously active this year.

Colomdoan Interfraternlty Baseball m THE SIGMA PHI EPSILON TEAM Standing: Left to right — Beery, Hal!, Walker, Zimmerman, Sullivan, Nelson, Brown, Burlingame. Kneeling: McDonald, Sherman. The scrub league composed of those poor nuts who are rousted out at five bells to play a little game of ball, started off with a rush on the 22nd of April when the Sigma Nus defeated the Phi Psis and the Delts won from the A. T. O.s. From then on the games waxed hot and fast on the dewy diamond until the series had simmered down to the Phi Delts, Phi Gams, and the Sig Phi Eps. The Sig Phi Eps finally trimmed the Phi Delts, but the deciding game between them and the Phi Gams was constantly postponed on account of the January-May weather. The championship game was not played off until this fall, when, after a close exciting game, the Sig Phi Eps defeated the Phi Gams and won the pennant.

The eleven fraternities that entered were divided into two divisions, the games commencing on the 26th of October. From the start it was evident that the strongest team in the first division was the Alpha Sigma Phis, and they managed to clean up in their section. In the second division the Sig Alphs finally eliminated the others but in the championship series they were easily defeated in two successive games. The Alpha Sigma Phi team is the fastest team that has participated in the interfratemity games for many seasons; that they had some team is evidenced by the fact that three of the five men are on the Varsity squad. 1917 FINISH OF THE 100YARD DASH OFFICERS OF MEET C.

But nevertheless the League is a factor of great importance in the school. It was founded eleven years ago by Mrs. James H. Baker, wife of President Emeritus Baker, for the purpose of bringing the rather scattered women of the University into closer touch with one another. Every girl in school is a member of the League, and as such pays, or at least is expected to pay, yearly dues. The Women ' s League is governed by an administrative board of fourteen members, seven sorority and seven non-sorority girls, and an advisory board of four prom- inent faculty women. The first and most important aim of the League is to promote friendli- ness and democracy among the women of the University, and for this end certain informal affairs are given throughout the year, to which all the girls in school are invited. Another aim of the League, scarcely less important, is to provide a loan fund from which deserving girls may borrow money with- out interest during their college course, the money being payable after the girls have left school and become self-supporting. Every year at least a small amount is added to this fund, the money being obtained by various means, such as the Women ' s League ball, the vaudeville, and the masquerade. In the last few years the League has become actively interested in the erection of the Women ' s Building on the campus, and has devoted much time and effort to this end. The May Fete, given every two years, is a result of this movement, and has proved such a success that the fund is already large enough to give hopes that the Women ' s Building will be a reality in a relatively short time. ■ : " 1917 ! ! g:JIi " ' " 7 " " " " ■ " " " " " ' ' -• ' " ■ " Y.

The tea is given by that mystical organization known as the Women ' s League, and at it the freshman meets millions of very nice girls all dressed up in their company manners, trying desperately hard to be nice to ninety-nine new girls they have never seen before. At this first tea she is firmly convinced that she will hate the school and all that dwell therein, for these girls could never unbend and be human like the ones in High School. But this feeling begins to fade away when the freshman goes to her next party, the one given by the Big Sister Committee for all the Little Sisters in school. Here the rather bewildered girl pulls taffy, gets it in her hair and al over her best clothes, and has a perfectly beautiful time. She decides that most of the girls in school are not half so stiff as they at first seemed. The awed feeling disappears still further after the Women ' s League vaudeville, where the astonished fresh- man sees those superior beings who used to belong to another planet altogether, disporting themselves in most unseemly ways. And by the time the Y. W. C. A. Carnival comes along, the Freshman does not even bat an eye at the wierd appearance of the President of the Associa- tion dressed in the appropriate garb of a darly washerwoman. The best time of all comes with the Masquerade Ball. Here the costumes that the Fresh- man sees are not merely unusual, but they are startling in the extreme, and the young maiden can only stand by and gasp at the conglomeration of skeletons, bathing girls, dapper young " eds, " fishermen, movie actresses, monkeys, et cetera, moving about on the floor of the dance hall. She can hardly recognize her best friend, and she goes home dazed, to dream of the dresses she has seen, convinced at last that most of the " Young Ladies " in college are a trifle more in- terested in enjoying life than in imbibing much superfluous knowledge. 1917 182 j ]||Colamd0a.n The Bi Sister Coinmlttee j y DOROTHY BURTON, Chairman of the Committee When Susie Jones, young and timid Freshman, steps from the train in Boulder in Septem ber, she is greeted by a pleasant-faced girl w ho shakes her hand, grabs her bulging suit case, inquires her name, and starts with her up the hill toward the University. On the way the Fresh- man discovers that her guide is wearing a yellow and white badge with large black letters on it spelling " Big Sister Committee. ' Susie has never heard of this committee before, and is a little too bewildered to ask any questions about it, but all during the awful first week of school she is again and again befriended by the girls with the yellow and white badges. One of them makes out her schedule for her, another guides her through the labyrinths of the registrar ' s office, and another takes her all around the hill until she finds a room. And at last another girl with a badge announces to Susie that she is to be her Big Sister for the year. And then Susie asks her about the Committee. She finds that the Big Sister Committee was organized some four years ago, with the primary object of helping the Freshman girls to see that they make friends and do not become too homesick. Each member of the Committee, which is composed of some twenty-five girls, most of them Juniors and Seniors, has about five Little Sisters, over whom she is supposed to keep a friendly eye during all their Freshman year. Regular meetings of the committee are held, at which reports are read. It is needless to say that not the least of the Big Sisters ' tasks is to see that the Little Sisters make enough hours credit to stay in school. ft 1917 183 ELIZABETH TENNANT President LEILA HUNTER Vice-President HELEN LUNDBERG Secretary ANNA MARIE CHENEY Manager MARGUERITE MANNING Assistant Manager HELEN MASTERS BUNTING at u cc • and NELLIE SILLIK S Members ex officio Reed Tennant Lowe Cheney Fleming Baum Sillik McGraw SENIOR BASKETBALL TEAM, 1916 INTERCLASS CHAMPIONS 1S4 1917 Colamdoan TENNIS Helen Knight and Vera Fisher won the doubles championship in the spring tournament.

Mr. and Mrs. Yew of See had just about given up hope for their daughter, Woman ' s Ath- letics, when Miss Bunting hurried on the field. Under her capable treatment the patient began to improve at once. At first she was given large doses of archery, captainball, and tennis. As she gained strength, Dr. Bunting found her a lively patient; so she got charming Miss Bolan for a nurse. Baseball was the tonic, however, which finally caused Woman ' s Athletics to " pick up " and become stronger than ever before. Girls who were formerly too lazy to swat the fly worked up enthusiasm over co-ed base- ball and went out to raise their batting average. Thin ones! fat ones! round ones! flat ones! all burned up the diamond with baseball tactics that would have made Ty Cobb ' s head swim. The big game of the season, between the Regulars and the Electives, was played on Home- coming Day. The latter team came out some three hundred and forty-six runs ahead. 186 1917 Prominent Co-eds Colomdoan m D T [F Prizewinners in Coloradoan Style and Class Contest 1917 § |lColomd0dn omens Johnny Bustakeg was an Alphalpha Delt, and Felicia Featherbrain a Gabba Wadda Gum, and they were about the most verdant pair of tender Freshmen who ever stepped about the campus. Johnny fell for her the first day he saw her in the library, wasting her Spearmint smile on C. Henry, who, being married, could not appreciate it. After that Johnny was so miserable that he could only dispose of two helpings of hash at meals until one of his brothers in crime took him to the Gamma Wadda House and knocked him down to her. Johnny took Felicia to several jitney shows, and walked home from Freshman History with her every day, and finally asked her to the Woman ' s League ball. Johnny didn ' t know what a ball was, and Felicia thought the Woman ' s League had something to do with Miss Bunting ' s gym classes, but that didn ' t matter. Also, Johnny had never heard of making out pro- grams beforehand, and Felicia couldn ' t manipulate any thing more modern than the barn dance. Johnny ' s ticket said the party began at 8:30, and Felicia thought they had best go early and avoid the rush. They were a little surprised to find no one else at the hall, but they went and sat in a corner and admired the dec- orations, which were all yellow and black, and lots nicer than anything Felicia had ever seen before. After a very long time during which all topics of con- versation were drained dry, a lot of other people came, and Johnny and Felicia began to feel a little less like Robinson Crusoe and Man Friday. Soon every- one formed a long line which they said was the grand march, and the two fresh- men got in line in order not to miss anything. They all marched around the room several times, just like fire drill in high school, and then some faculty women who were there (Johnny and Felicia didn ' t know just why) gave them programs, cunning black and yellow things. Felicia went and sat in a corner while Johnny tried to fill up the programs. Somehow, everyone had all his dances taken, but at last Johnny found two other freshmen who had never been to a big dance before, either, and so Felicia didn ' t have to dance quite a straight program. On the way home the young lady was decidedly cool, and Johnny felt like an angle worm. But just the same he got up courage to ask Felicia to the Freshman Party, and she accepted, although she didn ' t just seem overcome with joy at the prospect. 1917 Thereafter, every noon, Johnny and Felicia, unknown to each other, practised dancing. Johnny discovered that it is not considered proper to plaster your face on the girl ' s forehead and push her about like a vacuum cleaner, and Felicia learned that the barn dance is more or less out of date. At the Freshman party, Johnny had his program all doped out before- hand, and had only to put down the names in the little Freshman caps that Felicia was so crazy about. When it came to dancing, all those weeks of practice had certainly helped some! The whole party was lovely, and all the little Freshman girls wore their best dresses — the ones they graduated from high school in. Felicia thought the punch queer, but rather nice, al- though she couldn ' t see the stick that Johnny said was in it. (Johnny was getting educated fast!) They both had a beautiful time, and Felicia smiled sweetly and said she would be delighted when Johnny asked her to go to the Engineers ' ball with him. Colam uan There were lots more people at the Engineers ' ball than at the Freshman party, and Felicia had even a better time. She was wild about the little blue- print clip pads that they gave for programs, but she was a little disappointed in the punch. One doesn ' t as a rule expect firewater from the Freshmen and malted milk from the Engineers. There were hundreds of men there that Felicia had never seen before, and Johnny said that they were rough-neck Engineers who never came to any other dances. But Felicia agreed with everyone that the Plumbers could do the society act as well as anyone when they tried. Col0md0a n iiiiiiiiiiiiii IIIIIIIIIIIIII Felicia was pretty crazy about Johnny by this time herself, but she really didn ' t expect him to ask her to the Junior Prom. She could have kissed him when he did ask her but she didn ' t, for it was in Chapel, and might have been conspicuous. She started out right away to plan a new dress, and Johnny pawned his watch and wrote Dad that he needed ten dollars worth of new Isooks for Freshman English. The Prom was gorgeous far more formal than anything else the two Freshmen had ever encountered. Even the president of the Junior class looked dignified, and the girls were all beautiful. Johnny made the highly original remark that his girl was the best looking one there, but of course Felicia didn ' t go so far as to believe him. There was a great big green arch down the center of the hall, all stuck full of red flowers, while the ice and the punch and the mints were green and white. Felicia had a frabjous time, and said " yes " almost before Johnny had finished asking her to the Sopho- more German with him. ps m I pl Colamdoan m § .. Jdphomorp fermd p . m ' And that German! Felicia declared that she had a better time than she did at the Prom, for she wasn ' t scared within an inch of her life for fear she would make what one of the girls called an awful " fox paw. " Everything at the German was in blue and white — the Dutch lanterns over the lights, and the adorable little Dutch girls who served the punch and " weinies. " And the nicest thing of all was the little Dutch boy and girl who led the grand march, and whom Felicia very nearly kissed right in the middle of things. Yes, the whole party was just about perfect, and a fitting end to the big series of dances. And Felicia, when she said " good night " to Johnny, thought of the first dance, when she had been so miserable, and almost laughed out loud. A college education certainly does accomplish marvels.

Although the game proved disastrous to us, several hundred old grads took advantage of the time and the attractions to pay their Alma Mater a visit. The program for their benefit included stunts by the different schools, the Freshman bonfire, a tennis match with the Tiger court men, presentation of insignia to our athletic heroes, an exhibition of what women can do in the muscle building line by a series of games between the women, the Intercol- legiate Cross Country race, a reunion banquet, and, as a fitting finale, the splendid vaudeville in Macky. It is certain that the all around defeats of the day did not detract entirely from the Alumni enjoyment, because ex- pressions of a good time and a most pleasant reunion were to be heard on every side. 220 1917 m l ' DCtX 1 - % m XJOL-XJLJ: X X u H 9-( C ifa El Colomdodtt Abandon Dull Care All Ye Who Enter Here Comes now the time for PLAY In this conglomerate conglomeration of idiocy, non- sense and bunk, will be found the following: I.

THOMAS RYAN Electrocutionist ■,aiS!Sii Colom oan Recent Books by Noted Authors ♦THE MAGIC GREASE SPOT " One of the modern writers of scientific management has said about M. " Teitelbaum Her- rick ' s book, entitled, " How to Make Two Grease Spots Grow Where Only One Grew Before. " " It is the masterpiece of business management. No merchant or cleaner can possibly make his work a success unless he has read this marvelous little volume. ' As a legal treatment of the subject, the author has made it beyond compare. He has suggested all the possible ways to dodge the most impossible claims against the modern merchant and cleaner. " My advice, ' says the author, " is to use the utmost care to put your feet on the other fel- low ' s back while sitting in class. Thus your trade is increased, prominence is gained, and the brand of shoes you sell is sure to maintain a high standard as collectors of mud. " •OUR DANCES ABRIDGED " This author, Frank Wilkin, beloved to the hearts of all faithful followers of the terpsichor- ean art, father of the Crocodile Clutch, and the Elephant Walk, has just published his latest book entitled " Our Dances Abridged, and Disguised; Dean Bigelow Wouldn ' t Know Them. " The chief merit of this work is the illustrated section, in which he has portrayed for the student the various steps. With the aid of an engineer, a rod, transit and level anyone, with a mind the size of a mustard seed, can master the steps in a few weeks ' ardent study. i " MY CAREER AS A PROFESSIONAL STUDENT " Colorado ' s famous exponent of student life, Patrick McKee, has just published his latest and best volume entitled, ' My Career as a Professional Student. " Tears have come to the eyes of the most hardened, and even the hardest-hearted professor sobs convulsively at those touching words of our author, " Got any smoking? I want another cigarette to think with. " Some thoughtful soul has composed a touching ballad in memory of " Our Patrick " the first verse of which runs, " What will we do for old ' P. A. ' when our dear Patrick ' s gone? " The critic dares go no farther; words fail to describe the feeling; it is not within our power to picture a scene as deep with sentiment as is this. " AN EXPERT WITNESS " Having attained importance as a supporter of " Piper Heidsieck, " and as an able jurist, Edward " Squirt " Ellis has set his hand successfully to the task of becoming an expert in hand- writing. " An Expert Witness, " his recent volume, contains some of the most interesting and instructive passages ever written by human hand. In fact, we are almost inclined to think that, as the Niwot Slam says, " his seems to be an almost superhuman power. " His opening phrase, " After considering the matter from fourteen different points of view, and forming an opinion on the matter from my varied knowledge, which, I might add, is the most complete in this continent, I should answer yes, and no, " is one which has puzzled even the justices of the peace.

My Poor Little Shrunken Shop-girl Mind PRIZE STORIES: YES! By Letitia Prop He was gone! Yes, he was gone! He was gone, and the somber softness of the misty moonlight had engulfed him. I sat staring at the faded piece of calico in my hand; my eyes were sightless, my head was thoughtless; my body drooped listless. A cuckoo trilled without. I did not hear it. I was cuckoo. " Can the rest of the world be gay? " I won- dered dully, in my poor little shrunken shop- girl mind. " Is there singing, and laughing, and joy anywhere in the world? Does the sunshine shine anywhere? " I arose, and went and laid my poor head on the cold iron of the kitchen sink. The end. (These last two words don ' t count.)

" At last I ' ve got you, " hissed the half-breed murderer, as he flashed his teeth in a mingled smile of triumph, and a sneer of bitter hatred for our hero. He lifted his machete to strike, then an evil plan crossed his mind. He would torture his victim — kill him by slow and horrible degrees. He took the end of the handle of his huge knife between thumb and finger, and lifted it high, directly over one of the eyes of his captive. He chuckled, gloating. " Unos dos " he said, then " tres. " The knife flashed downward. But it had scarcely left the hand of the greaser ere " Pip, " came the sound of Manzanita ' s little revolver, the one Hank had given her, and the knife was hit in mid-air, flashing to one side, and entering the leg of the unholy Mex. " You " Ed. Note. — This wasn ' t the end of the story. It gets lots more exciting as you proceed. But the lino- type broke down on the Mexican cuss words. I " Die " said Guadaloupe Bill BILL THE BUSTER By Dorothy Horticulturist i| i — -your Playin ' Keeps with Georgie " You mustn ' t do that, you bad little boy. Go home immediately, " shrilled Miss Anthrope angrily from her rickety back porch, where she was assiduously scrubbing her white angora cat. " How dare you kick a rock along my sidewalk? " Bill merely grunted and proceed- ed. He was used to this kind of chiding several times a day. He would have disregarded it as usual, had not the " Hateful Nut, " as he cheerily termed the lank spinster, seen fit to add to her remarks: " Well, you ' ll get what ' s coming to you when you get home. I ' ve told your mother all about your playin ' keeps with Georgie Tanner, an ' — " ■ 1 m Bill looked up in amazement. Then a flush of anger suffused him, and he burst out: " Well, you dog-gone ol ' tattle-tale, you. You " . Then he recalled himself, and gasped with horror at what he had done. He had called Miss Anthrope a nawful name! Horrors! Now he would never go home. Face his mother, after such a thing? Never! Especially since he now heard Miss Anthrope wildly calling his telephone number to Central. What should he do? Ed. Note. — He should have done any of several things. But he didn ' t. He sneaked in, got his wooden sword, and went out to conquer the world, as all boys must do, you know. Very sad tal;. CHATTER By Millie B. Ladybug " Oh, would you mind hooking me up, dear, I ' m in such a hurry, " said Wilhelmina to her room-mate. " William said be sure and not be late, because the second show starts at nine, and we may have to wait in line half an hour or so to get in at all. " Helen com- plied graciously, as usual. " Have you got an extra stick of gum, Helen? ' asked Billy. " I accidentally swallowed mine. I saw that swell Harrison man come round the corner all of a sudden, and I gulped, and pretty nearly choked. " " I can ' t sit still without something to chew on, and William never does buy anything, ' she lamented. " Say, I saw the swellest pair of kicks down town today, " she continued. " White kid, with laces up the back, and yella fur around the ankle. I wish Dad ' d put my check in another kind uv envelope this time, so the landlady wouldn ' t recognize it and bring it, and stand around till I endorsed it to her, as she usually does. Maybe I couldn ' t step around with them white printers, eh. Kid? " Have you got an extra stick of gum, Helen? Ed. Note. — More of this typical college stuff, solutely true to life. Ab- THE GUANTLETED HAND By J. P. McKey " Lord and Lady Wes ' ches ' r, " announced the guilded flunky at the wide portals of the par- lor of Georgison ' s great Fifth Ave. mansion. Swell clad ladies, and sombre garbed gents turned with one accord to welcome the salubrities. They were the dolls of the day, and the whole mob was there with the outstretched paw for greet- ing. Everybody was smashing up close so as to get a good slant, when suddenly them on the front rank paused, astounded, with their mugs wide open to the breeze. All became still as the grave. Nobody even sneezed. The tennis pause continued to last for some four minutes. Then the crowd began to disburse rapidly. I worked my way up to find out what was the troub. 1917 I was shocked with horror at the sight! Here, in this swell house, where everybody was all dressed up in their gala night clothes, and every last fixing was correct up to the latest limit -into such a smashing swell bunch had come this poor hick lord blundering with gauntlets on his hands! New York society has never recovered from this stupendous blow to the solar plexus of her social pride. Ed. Note. — This is the most finished society story I have ever read. I finished it by the grate-fire route. A TRUE STORY ABOUT ME By Tommy Lyan One day I spent some of my exceedingly valuable time going down town to attend to some affairs of the Dramatic Club, of which I am manager, and of Ache Dicki Phi, of which I ought to be president, and the numerous other honorary clubs to which I belong and to send some telegrams in answer to those from my aristocratic New York friends, and to do some banking. I looked at my watch, and saw to my horror that I was late to a date with a swell girl from Paris. I had to hurry up the hill. No taxi in sight, my car in Denver, and no friends with machines near. I was forced to board the Colorado Power Co. Grasshopper. Everybody was all dressed up_in their gala night clothes It was crowded. I had to stand up. At the next corner two marvelously pretty girls got on, and stood next to me. One of them, to steady herself, put out her hand, and took hold of mine. Maybe she thought it was her friend ' s, or at least she pretended to think so. We stood thus clear up the hill. She started to leave. She saw she had my hand, and blushed deeply. " Why, why, " she stammered, trying to pretend it wasn ' t on purpose, " Why, I had hold of the wrong hand. " Then I came right back at her. " The wrong one, you say? " said I. " Well, here ' s my other one. " THE TALE OF THE KANGAROO By Jack English CHAPTER ONE Way out in the blue Pacific is an island small and green, where are fifteen dozen cannibals ruled over by a queen. Now this queen was young and comely and she had a score of beaux, but she turned them all down neatly for she said they were too slow. Many times the young awains sought her and implored with touching plea that the queen consent to take them and forever happy be But the royal wench stood firm and said that coona would never do; she had dreams of men with fairer skins, jght hair and eyes of blue. So they gave her up unwillingly and found great consolation in hashish, which on those ar shorea, is the form of dissipation. The queen meanwhile, spent all her time in dreaming on the beach, and peering toward that distant land so far without h er reach where lived, she knew, a race of men so different from her own. who did not live to fight and drink — and gn»w upon a bone. And so she whiled away the hours in silence and alone, for without love what life had she? What good to her a throne? She thus resolved that never would she marry in her life unless some big tall white boy should take her for his wife. CHAPTER TWO Hans Albert was a pious guy, religion was his aim : to him a dance, or game, or mm was hellfire just the same. He preached the Holy Gospel in every hamlet small, in country town or city large— Hans Albert took them all. There was no nook or crannie, no mountain, plain or dell that Hans had not stepped off at and showed the way from Hell. The people hadn ' t listened. They were going to the dogs, so Hans said he would take to sea and there preach to the frogs. He left his wife and sixteen kids to earn their own poor living, while he to sharks and savages God ' s messages was giving. He would not worry with them more; he ' d turn to fish instead, and seek to spread the Holy Word down in the deep sea ' s bed. So Hans got on a wcioden hulk, which once had been a ship in bygone days when Noah ' s birds and chickens had the pip. The wood was sogged and barnacled, the deck was soft with tar, but things like these did not jar Hans — he was not going far. From a port name l San Francisco, one evening cool and dark, this half baked mudscow took its crew and thenceforth did embark. Our Hans wae sitting in the stern, all wrapped up in the thought that maybe for his family some bread he should have bought before he left them all alone. ' Twould be the saddest shame if all his folks should stane to death — they ' d think he was to blame. Why think of war in times of peace? Why go to all this bother? In one small hand he held «ome beer — and pretzels in the other. " My life is now to be a joy — on which I ' ll write a thesis — ' 111 do a lot of other things, if the boat don ' t break to pieces. " So (juoth our Hans with emphasis, and, cussing like a trooper, he slid down on his shoulder blades into a drunken stupor. CHAPTER THREE When Hans woke up it was two weeks since he had gone to sleep. Hia head wa.s in so bad a shape it made the poor boy weep. To have a jag for two whole weeks, it must have been ; ' dandy. The sailors found a sleeping man oftimes came in quite handy. They made a mop cloth out of Hans; they used him aa a stoker; they tied him to the .steering wheel while they indulged in poker. So Hans wa.s in an awful fix; his clothes were mussed and worn; he looked just like a ten cent check which four times has been torn. But no time for ap- pearances. A storm is drawing nigh; a large black clou 1 of evil looks ia covering up the sky; the wind is whistling through the ropes; high flies the spray and foam. Looks bad to be in -such a fix so far away from home. Meanwhile night cornea on apace, the storm [has not abated; it opens up its cavernous maw and is not satiated. The blackness hangs around in gobs, and lightning sends its shock, when all at once the mud scow stops and breaks upon a rock. Poor bans is thrown a thousand yards and lights upon his bean right s iuare upon a rude, rough reef which he had never seen. He ' d read of such things happening in books he ' d oft peru.sed, but with rocks he ' d ne ' er been intimate lest they ' d been introduced. He hit the reef an awful rap, his coco it did mash; with feet in air he poised there a mo- ment then went splash into the hungry churning sea. He could not see nor hear. ' Twas then he longed for wife and kids, and four more quarts of beer. Alas there was no near beer here, there was no wine nor malt. But to make sure, Hans oped his gib and got a pound of salt. That finished him; his head twir ' ej round, his mouth he opened wide, to the abyss of unconsciousness Hans made a graceful slide. ixteen kids 1917 CHAPTER FOUR Queen Liliouki Mizpah Varnish sat upon the shore. A mighty hurricane had swept the sea the night before. She won- dered if some ship had met the might of this fell force. She sadly hoped that it had sunk while sailing on its course, and that one of its crew would float on to this greasy isle Sho ' d marry him, and pamper him, and let him live in style. While build- ing castles in the air and sitting on the strand, the sea brought Hans up to the beach and flopped him on the sand. Queen l-,ili ran with all her might — at last her man had come. (Ed ' s note — from him she did not fiee, ' twas toward him that she rxm.) She grabbed his mashed up, broken bean and hugged it to her breast. Both hands she plucked up with her own and to her lips sh ' ! pressed At last! at last! the sea had heard and answered to her prayer. Just then Hans opened up his mouth and sucked in yards of air. We can not blame him very much. He ' d had none for so long. At least he had a right to breathe, to breathe can not be wrong. Then his pale, green eyelids fluttered, and he heaved a trembling sigh. To rest in arms so loving was enough to make him die. His wife had never acted thus; it surely was not she! This woman smelt of garlic sweet. He thought, who could it be. And then he opened up his lamps and gazed into her face. One look sufficed, he closed his eyes and stayed in her embrace CHAPTER FIVE Ten years have passe l since Albert bold created such commotion by giving up his native land and takimc to the ocean. He never had come back and so hi wife in joyous glee. got married to a millionaire and now lives happily The chil- dren do not cr ' for bread, — they live on wine and shrimp. Their mother has no aching head — she does not save and scrimp. But money is a common thing, it ii no much sought smidgeon. But more than that her husband does not always talk religion. So they are glad that father Hans went dippy and departed. They sorrowed only that he took so long in getting started. CHAPTER SIX Hans too is rather satisfied that he took Fortune ' s chance and lanJel on this desert isle— it had been good to Hans. He had another mess of kids, but they were princes now. For them he blessed the angry sea, he blessed the old mud scow. For he no more did agitate the message of the gospel. He tried it once and all the coons proclaimed themselves quite hostile. They told him that the pious stuff hiwi never made a hit. They banqueted on missionaries and Hans believed it. Much better to be king and to be pleased with all he ' d got, than rouse the ire of savages an be cast in a pot to make a parboiled fricassee and feed a hungry throng. He thought of fifteen dozen and said " Gosh, I ' d not last long. " So Albert lived there years and years. — six hundred and eleven, — before he cashed in all his chips and started out toward Heaven. His life was long and idle, he had neither worked nor spun, he had smoked a thousand coffin nails and been on many a bun; but one thing Hans accomplished well outside his dissipation, for which let ' s give him credit boys, he increased population. So ends my little masterpiece, a poor attempt at fiction; there is no skill in composish, there is no strength in diction. There is a kind of riddle though, which you have all seen through, and that is why the piece is called " Tale of the Kangaroo ' The bird they call the kangaroo, it has a monstrous tail which guides and pushes this big fish o ' er mountain, plain and vale. Now if this animule had not a tail like this to cherish, he ' d have to lie down on a rock and say his prayers and perish. This story is a tale of mine on which I much depend. It ' ll either make me rich, or else will bring me to my end. It is not big and fat I know like the tail of the kangaroo, but under the circs, I ' m glad of that. This kind of a tale is new. — Finis. Ed ' s. Note. — This won the dog. It cost the idiot $4.69 to get it published, but he persuaded us to do it with a six ' gun.

All we know is that they both visit the Pi Phi house often. 1917 -iirmm Columdoan THEY THROW THEM IN JAIL NOWDAYS The Sheriff smiled with ghoulish glee " Get on your knees and scrub! You ' re an ordinary forger and a syncopated dub, And if this floor ' s not spotless By a quarter after two, I ' ll grab you by the collar, and I ' ll mop it up with you The prisoner glanced up meekly. And said in a tone of woe, " Oh, dear little Mr. Sheriff, " Why add to my burdens so? " I swear I am not a scrub-lady — " A globular tear left his eye — " So how can I mop up the basement " When I am a Beta T. Pi? " OUR FOOTBALL HERO Though his head was full of straw. He had fever of the brain; Though both legs were made of wood. He had water on the knee; Though both sets of teeth were false, Yet they pained him just the same And he had the tonsilitis Where his tonsils used to Frathouse Freddie was out in the world. The boys at the Smoka Pipa Hoppa lodge missed him at the old chapter shack. Freddie used to crouch over the harmony crate and pound out bass chords with his south paw while the highbrow dan was feeding on Horace, Blackstone and Darwin up in the brain stalls. Freddie was a frat man par excellence. He was champion catch-as-catch-can ragger of the varsity dancing set and was runner up for four years in the hesitation doubles. As a student of math, rhetoric and psychology, however, he was a bloomer. Not that Freddie was paralyzed from the scarf pin up or carried such a handicap above the brows, but he resisted all manner of mental applications and cerebral plasters with the same spirit he had displayed in childhood days when mother tried to cleanse his neck for Sunday school. He was always cutting class. He attended lectures so seldom that he had to hire a guide each time he wanted to find the main building. The only campus walking he did was when the moon hovered low and he supported a sorority lass on one arm — and sometimes two arms. It was the same old story of how one prof can lead a boob to knowledge, but ten deans cannot make him think. The boys looked Freddie up one day several years after he had left the cranium expander, and had been out in the world diving for iron. You see he was a frater in urbe and they wanted to have a lamp at this house hero doing his daily battle for the cakes. Well, none of them could declare that the wheels of commerce were showing any increased acceleration on account of Freddie ' s broad shoulders being applied to them. They found him in a movie palace. He was handing out modern editions of Chopin in gross lots and he could run from B flat to H minor without knocking over a hurdle. It was getting him by, but somehow the bay leaves had dropped from his expanse of brow and the old confi- dence crouch had faded into a mechanical droop of the frame. " Well, Freddie, " began one of the brothers, slipping across with the secret mitt contortion, " now that you are out in the open, what do you think of the old days back in the frat house? " " I ain ' t saying that I know enough to give me a M. A. degree on the subject, ' began Fred- die between films, " but I think if I had played the books like I played the frat stuff, I might of been a MORE SWEETER CITIZEN. " You know I used to be a champion when it came to trotting out the Kappa Kappa Jama girls or the Pi Beefsteak Fry maids to a bunch of fast laps around the dance track, but I never was no knockout while shadow boxing with my studies. You know I took Liberal Arts and I made them as liberal as my Dad ' s allowance during the Christmas holidays. Some work is ed- ucational. Mine was CO-EDUCATIONAL. 1917 " Of course, I was counted wealthy among the boys in the Smoka house because I owned my own toothbrush, three suits and a complete set of full dress studs. I was never stuck up about that, though, and when Pep McKnight used to touch me for my white gloves I al- ways tried to be kind about it when I refused him. Say, old Pep was a great guy, wasn ' t he? He was always touching you, and like the great artist that he was, he would retouch you if he thought you was getting loose around the background. " It sure was pretty soft for me up there with a furnace edition of briar in my face and foxy creases in my leg wraps and that ' Nothing doing till tomorrow ' look spread all over my collegiate map. The only thing that worried me was sleeping in them double deck beds. When I was a Fresh- man I flopped on the second story of one. I called it the quarter deck because most of it was gone and what wasn ' t gone always stuck into my spine all night. When I got to be a Sophomore I decided to travel steerage, but the lower berth wasn ' t much better than the top floor. No wonder college guys don ' t go to bed early! The only way you can get any rest in a double decker is to walk in your sleep. " Look at me now! Just give me the visual measurements and then call the alienists. " I only wished you could get by in the world like you can among the brothers. If a frat man wants anything to wear, eat or sell, he just takes it from a brother. Try some of that stuff out here in the world an ' all you get is a free ride and a trip up to the home for careless adults. And then you spend your time crackin ' rocks or massaging mountain roads for tourists. I often wished tho, they would of sent me to the pen. Maybe I could start a chapter of the Smokas up there and have a easy time oncet more. " I long for the old days again. Frat men are the world ' s true socialists. What ' s yours is everybody else ' s. If you don ' t give freely of your store you ' ll lose it anyway. When Greek meets Greek, somebody ' s goin ' to make a touch. " Remember them Scrapiron serenades we used to give the girls on the hill? I thought I had a swell baritone when singin ' ' My Irene ' s the Village Queen. ' Yep, I had a sweet voice. I threw a mean larynx. Yet, when I tried to hold down a job callin ' trains in the choo-choo terminal I got fired for incompetency. I used to be a bear at howling for the varsity eleven, but the depot boss said I sounded like I was trying to whisper backwards in a Maxim silencer. " The world don ' t understand a frat man. On the campus it ' s great to belong to the law frat, the medic frat, the tennis frat, the football frat, and carry around a bundle of hardware that would give a safe mover the spinal collapse, but just you try to pull a big Smoka shield on a grouch of a business man and he will ask you to take the billboard out in the alley. I hocked mine long ago. I couldn ' t of got more than two bits on the emblem if I hadn ' t of bulled the brok into believin ' it was one of Cleopatra ' s belt buckles and had lots of historic value. " When I used to come in with a bun that wasn ' t gathered at no bakeshop the brothers would ease me into the hay and envy me. Now I have to carry it careful like on my hip and walk fast to keep from getting vagged and thrown into the iron flat for ninety days. " Remember them poker parties? It was nothin ' for me to hold four aces and straight flushes then. Now if I have better than threes someone across the boards is liable to haul out a one- eyed scribe and paint my liver with hot lead. " But say, ' ' and Freddie Frathouse ' s manner grew confidential, " if I was back I ' D DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN. " However, the former collegiate idol is firm in his belief that nobody loves a frat man. 1917 I plColgmdoatt FUTURISTIC POETRY By Alfred Sound Once upon a time there Was a Registrar whose First name was Freddie, but He also had a last Name which was more Dignified. Anyway this Registrar was a pulsUc Spirited man, and he believed In preparedness. He thought The militia was a Good thing, so he wanted To join and give it His support. But On the other Hand, he knew this Militia had to live on horse Back part of the time, and he was scared to Death of horses. Now this Freddie was a wise Guy as well as a patri- otic one, so he thought Up a good plan to Protect himself and his Family. He found an in- surance company that was Willing to take a Chance, and he bought an Accident policy. Then he Felt safer, so he joined The Militia. Now this Is a true story so Help me God! But The mora! is — Who Insured the horse? Once there was a Univer- sity, and it had two Fellows what Were called Adam ' s Twins. And they were So much alike that you Could hardly tell Them apart, especially When Eve was draw- ing near. And being Connected with these Two characters, the Twins were natur- Ally closely related To his Satanic majes- Ty. And they delighted In causing all Kinds of trouble. Sometimes they fooled Each other, but that Was too Much work, so most Of the time they Just got other people mixed Up; and many a poor girl Would like to shoot Them if she Knew she was getting The right one; and also More than one politician Had a devil Of a time keeping Them straight. All of which Would go to show that the Singular of Adam ' s Twins is A Dam twin- singular indeed! How to Become an Ideal Physical Man or Woman By Pearline Solong (This series is running every day in the Rocky Mountain Snooze.) By my method you can become what you ought to be in almost no time. Look at my pho- tographs. They show me as I was judged the Ideal Woman of the World, at the Sassafras County Fair last year. I am a specimen of my own system. You can become the same. All you have to do is follow the directions below very closely, and never give up hope. Digestion: This is the root of all human ills. It can be overcome by taking my exer- cises four hours a day. Morning: On aris- ing, stand on the edge of your bed, and reach over to the floor, after your socks, without bending the knees. Do this until you gain the socks. Lean backwards over the foot of your bed, and drop gently to the floor. Crawl under and over the bed fifty times. Get a bath towel, spread it on the floor, and try to crawl under it without using the hands. Chin yourself thirty times on the chande- lier. Have four people stand on your stom- ach as you lie on your back, and raise up on your neck and heels. Jump into an ice- and-salt solution bath, stand on your head in the tub while counting four hundred, then wrap yourself in a steamer rug and sit on a hot radiator for ten minutes. Retain a cheerful expression on your countenance throughout, and a happy feeling of hope and enjoyment. You can see that my exercises require no special apparatus, utilizing the simple implements of the home. Ringworm: Go thirty times up and down stairs backwards on hands and heels, back towards the floor, face towards ceiling. Wrestle for four downs with an ordinary ironing board. Prac- tice till you can stand on a rolling pin, and roll it from room to room. Climb the old apple tree in the back yard, and drop from the top limb. Arterio-Sclerosis: Stand and bend over backwards till your head hits the floor. This ex- ercise is unexcelled for quick results. 1917 | plColamd0 nll?i Hemolytic Insolvency: This terrible disease can be eradicated by tying a common sad iron to every foot and hand, and walking to the top of Flagstaff on all fours. Hanging by the hands on telephone wires and going thus from pole to pole is also excellently beneficial. Hold a broom rigidly vertical before you at arm ' s length, and then vibrate it rapidly from side to side. By no means let the straw part touch the floor, for this would no doubt send the dust shooting in every direction. Delirium Tremens: Put on all the clothes you have; sit in a high chair. Wrap four blan- kets around you, leaving only your head free. Grasp a large club between your teeth, and kill them one by one, as they appear. If this does not effect a cure, free one arm, and try stabbing them with a fountain pen. Reducing the hips: Try singing operatic songs; at the same time, lie over the piano stool on your back, letting the head hang down, and taking feet off the floor. Get up and raise one end of the piano a foot off the floor fifty times. Tatting, tiddledy -winks, and pinochle, are also recommended. Gangrene poisoning: Hang by your toes on the rain gutter of the porch roof. Juggle a rubber boot, a leather boot, some overshoes, and dishes for two hours. This is great sport, as well as beneficial. Try pulling your hair with your toes. Get a large, round rock, and roll it around the front yard, using your feet while the body is stretched out level with the ground, sup- ported on your hands. These preliminary exercises are very simple. One can master them in one trial. In this series of articles I will advance to the hard ones as fast as is compatible with the adaptability of the average person. When we get to the point where the pupil is able to support himself in a horizontal position with arms outstretched, face down, by holding onto the upper edge of one chair with his teeth, and putting his toes on another chair, is where we get results. This is a wonderful remedy for falling hair. In our next issue I will take up some more complicated exercises, more nearly the kind I practice every day myself to retain my present perfection. I hope that you can content your- selves with the foregoing until that time. pi Coli mdodtt My Dear Doctor Bushy: I take this method, somewhat obscure as it may be, of telling you how much I have learned from your courses in Economics. I came here to study your subjects especially, and, oh, I ' m so awful glad I did. Will I ever forget those wonderful hours we (tha t is, we, the class) spent together studying the Malthusian theory of evolution? No! No! It will always remain a vivid memory in my mind. Hoping you enjoyed those meetings also, I. am. Yours sincerely, Anna Belle.

We are incorporated in good old New Jersey, but our factory is located in Florida. I owe my startling success to your perfect methods of teaching frog anatomy in the dear old Alma Mater. Even now the scents of our beloved laboratory often come to me in my reveries. I am having just a little trouble at present, as the Mendelian ratio is not working correctly at present. We are getting about three times as many white frogs as we should ; probably you could give me some valuable suggestions. Another interesting fact, is that we have been forced to put maxim silen- cers on the bull, by order of the legislature — they make an ungodly noise you know.

Va., dispatch says a certain Dr. Grover recommends a gentle " pat-pat " as a substitute for the unhygienic kiss.) They were seated on a bench beneath the mellow moonlight. She had dressed in her shim- mering white because he had told her once this color was most becoming. In silence they lis- tened to a barytone bullfrog singing arias from grand opera in a marsh beneath the hill. They knew it was grand opera because they couldn ' t understand it. Higher the moon crept up the sky and closer the two nestled. Slowly his hand strayed from his pocketbook and covered her dainty hands — both of them. She yielded and with a tremendous sigh snuggled up and laid her $5 switch on his $2.98 vest, just over the spot where a piece of fried egg had reposed and left its signature. His hot, virile blood raced thru his throbbing arteries. His heart hammered until it sounded like a trap drum. Convulsive twitches tautened every nerve; he could smell the sweet perfume of her hair as it cascaded over his breast — she had been cooking cabbage. You can ' t mistake that perfume. The sweet intoxication of her fresh, warm beauty overpowered him. With a cry of almost animal fierceness he seized her passionately in his arms. " Don ' t, Algernon, " she whispered, in a tone that convulsed his entire being, " don ' t, don ' t. " " I must, " he almost shouted. " You little beauty you, you have driven me insane. " And he strained her to his breast and covered her hot face with pat-pats. (This was stolen body and soul from the Chicago Herald, but it was good enough to justify the theft.) OUR CAMPUS LOVE AFFAIR There once was a simp who had slipped with his lover; She told him his goose had been cooked for some time. He shed fifteen tears as he hovered above her, And went home to wail and be surly and whine. He let all his studies and duties go flying. While he clung to a Morris, with feet high in air. And thought himself wounded and nigh on to dying And dropping through space to the depths of despair. He wandered around with a note book and fountain. And gazed in the holes of his much- tattered soul, And scribbled off lyrics without ever countin ' The metre, or hours which from study he stole. He showed all this rot to his inconstant lady. Who either considered him crazy or sick. So he went to the side of the barn which is shady. And knocked all the bunk from his head with a brick. Now this lad wasn ' t nutty, nor ill at his stomach; He wasn ' t the only poor loot that was blighted — So they laid him to rest on the side of a hummock And said on his tombstone, " Poor John was near-sighted The moral of this is most easy to see : " Keep away from the girls or a dead one you ' ll be.

A man who has fathomed the un- fathomable, who has brought abstraction into concrete substance, who can materialize the visions of the mind ' s eye, mingles in our mob each day. Let the light of full discovery now beam on Lawrence W. Cole, futurist artist, master of the blackboard crayon; let all the world pay him homage! For who else on earth has ever been able to picture TIME — abstract idea, undefinable thing, with material lines of chalk? Whoever else has conceived THINKING, and depicted it to our sensual vision? Whoever else could so vividly portray to us PUTREFACTION, and the lack of it? Such things does Lawrence W. Cole. With a few simple, apparently artless strokes, he makes the most wonderful pictures to be imagined. He steps to the board, while telling us how he hates the movies, and draws a picture of the action of CHEWING GUM. Not of some per- son doing it, but of the loathsome idea itself. He portrays to us the ELEMENTS OF A JOKE while telling us the evolution of the useless dress coat from the useful riding-jacket. He draws us sweet pictures of POETRY, while he cheerfully relates to us the fact that playing cards were invented to divert the insane, and that they are still used for that purpose. He draws DENTS ON THE BRAIN, the RELATION OF THE BRAIN CENTER WE USE TO OUR SALARY, THE ALPHABET, AS SPOKEN FORWARD AND BACKWARD; THE RELATION OF FLOWER, BEE, PLOW-BOY, and ARTIST, and shows us the likeness between a FATIGUED BRAIN and an OLD-AGE BRAIN. CHILDREN ' S IDEAS, is one of his favorite artistic subjects. He makes us see them ma- terially, with a stroke or two of the chalk. Again, let all hail ! Pay due tribute to this wonderful man who has penetrated deeply veiled mysteries, and revealed their secrets to our ignorant minds! Look on these specimens, marvel and be awed! 1917 Colomdoan m m y ' n COLORADOAN GUESSING CONTEST Three quarts of Columbine will be awarded to the lucky person who has the ingenuity to guess all the names of the persons alluded to here.

He was deeply interested though not so well up on the points of this game as his own chosen sport. He followed the plays in silence for a while. His eyes twinkled, and the wrinkles at their outer corners came and went. His jaw worked ruminatively. (You never saw a real Diamond-dyed Baseball star who didn ' t mangle the weed. The best players chew most expertly, and one has to be able to turn his quid a double flip with his tongue, and catch it on the point of his right dog tooth to be recognized at all.) Finally this consummate exponent of such lingual and maxillary dexterity, the Bug, expurged a sufficiently large globule of Honey Dip Twist to allow the passage of syllables, and grinned. " Huh, I see they got a Southpaw twirlin ' the ball for ' em behind the plate this year, " he remarked to everybody in general. " Some slugger. Bet his average is .500. An ' I claim that little guy wot caught that fly just then is some outfielder. " These remarks were called forth by a kick. A forward pass caused him to say enthusiastically, " Some peg that pitcher ' s got, too. " Tank threw another pass, this time too far for the end to get under. " Huh, sonny, them over throws are costly, " said the Bug. Just then the ball, still in the air, hit another player on the head, and bounced into the end ' s arms. " Pretty work, old boy, " shouted the Bug. " Nice little assist. " Scrimmage. Every play drew a comment. Talbott nailed his man in his tracks. " ' Ats ' a ol ' put-out, boy. " Nelson made a long end run. " Ol ' base-stealin ' , kid. ' Atta way. " The Bug ' s grin was transfacial by now. He was squatted down, as though off first base, and employed coaching-box tactics between expectorations: " Lead oif, there, you right fielder, and tag him. It ' s the pitcher that ' s got the ball! There ' s one error against you for muffing that infield fly, short stop. " (Half-back meant.) " Colorado at bat, now, " as the ball changed hands. " Hide your signals under your glove, " to a back who was giving away by pointing, what the next play was to be. " Take second, take second! " to the runner who had a clear field, and " Home run, " when the player crossed the goal line. On the free goal kick, the ball hit the stand- ards and bounced aside. ' Foul ball " was the Bug ' s gloomy comment. After the next kick-off, the ball see-sawed from boot to boot. " Pitchers ' battle this inning, " said the Bug. " Last inning was hit-and-run. " " Rotten decision, " was his vehement declaration when a penalty was enforced. A couple of minutes before the end of the game, the Bug arose, took a new chaw, and stretched. " Well, all over but dividin ' the purse, " he said. " Last half of the ninth, two out, and the home team six runs ahead. So-long, boys. " 1917 THE DAIRY OF LITERARY LAKE Jan. 1 — Well, here it is Noo Yeres day, and all my friends are makin ' Noo Yeres resolootions. You should ' a herd some uv ' em and you shure would ' a laffed. Why old Freddie Hagen re- solved not to can anybody for cuttin ' chapel- ' less he caught ' em; and then Mister Wolle swore — well he swore plain nawty words, cause he had jest came from teaching one of those classes full of gurrels. N ' then Horace Pierce, you know him, made a resolootion not to fuss no more ' cept on Sundays and weak days, and Grubb, he ' s the barber where the floor is always green and the portur has to use a lawn more ' stead of a brume, well Grubb he made him an agreement not to smoke never again till he dies. There was lots more jest as funne, but I am tirde tellin ' them. Anyway, I desided not to swear anything so fuleish, so I resolved to keep me a Dairy, and write somethin in it every weak. A dairy will probably be useful when I write my oughter-be-ography. N ' then besides, I want to graduate from this school, and they say you can ' t pass many of the corses less you have a good stock of dairy products. Well, I have written so long my arm is tirde, and I guess this will do for the first installation. I will make some more next Saturday. Jan. 8 — Bowlder is a funne place these days. Everbody has gotten the grip, and such a lot of sneazing and snuffeling and blowing noses never was anywhere before. Why my room mate got the grip, and he thot he cud cure it so he went to Denver and he percured something in a grip for the grip. But now he is in the grip of the law, and my English instructor says it would make a gripping sityouashion for a drama or a short storie. To change the subject a robber held up a student ' n ' got his gould watch last night, and I am shure glad I had sense enuff to leave mine where it is saif. Mine is kind of a family airlume, and it is so valuable that I pay a man down on Larimer street fifty cents a munth to take care of it for me. Well Mary Pickford is down to the Curren this aftemune, so I think I will stop this stuff or I will be late to see her. Jan. 29 — O dear! I have broke my resolootion. I have been so bizzy studying for finels that I forgot to write any dairy. Well anyhow I past, and now it ' s all over. This mourning I unhitched the good ol ' cows brother from my fountain pen, and put him back in the stable. I don ' t know what I should have did if it were not for him. He is a good beest, and he deserves a rest. I am afrade this is the end of my dairy. I haven ' t any more inspuration, and you know every man who ever did anything grate had to have an inspuration. Inspuration, sais the grate poet, is a green pasture to the imagination, n ' how can I have a dairy without it. When I desided to start this dairy, I thought I had enuff to last a long time, but I guess I miss judged, cause I jest turned the bottle up side down, and there isn ' t a drop left. I think I will close with a little owed I wrote. It follows: The sun is sinking in the west; The day is done. And you my friends may go to rest; I too am done. I plColamdoan HERE COMMENCES THE COMBINATION Which reminds us that when good old Cleopatra was confronted with the accusation that she had been a fiend for such dishes as radishes in her young and glorious infancy, she had calmly replied as she bit off the ends of three turnips at once, " Oh, yes, but them was my salad days. " These are our salad days so forgive us our trespasses. EXTRA!! EXTRA!! EXTRA!! Remnants of the Inquisition Still Remains Amongst Us — Survival of Cromwell ' s Puritanism — Features Staff Persecuted In a mad effort to complete the feature section within schedule time, a serious barrier has been raised against the accomplishing of this design by the mad religious fanaticism of the husband of an erstwhile uncomplaining rooming house keeper. Mr. Jet Black, swept away by religious zeal, swore out seventeen warrants for the arrest, prosecution and imprisonment of each of six members of the Coloradoan staff this morning at 2 o ' clock. The object of the attack was to keep quiet in the home of the gentleman after seven- thirty in the evening. He states in his complaint that these rowdies and stew-bums gathered together in the room of one of the Staff, for which the unlucky sucker pays only eighteen dollars a month (a mere stipend, by the way) and while there assaulted, wrestled with and otherwise monkeyed around with a certain quart bottle of grape juice. Moreover they puffed many dozens of vile, lowdown cigarettes, all of which said cigarettes were completely annihilated. Moreover and also, one of the members of the group smoked a stogie of mean shape and worse odor, which stogie had not been presented to him by the com- plainant. To cap the climax of this wild orgie, they laughed frequently at the proposed jokes for the aforesaid feature section, which in itself is sufficient crime to have them all sent to jail for the rest of their natural lives and part of their unnatural ones. The accused, when interviewed in the Boulder Tower of London this morning, said that they considered themselves martyrs to the cause of humanity. All they had tried to do was to cheer up the downtrodden, and elevate the elevator. The " modus operandi " of this worthy purpose assumed the guise of an innocent bottle of Welch ' s best, in order that these men who have the weight of the University ' s sorrows on their now incapacitated shoulders, might derive and other- wise accumulate sufficient inspiration to make themselves worthy of the trust which is placed in them. That Phillip II, Bloody Mary, Nero, or any of their modern relations and descendants should take offense at the method with which they bore this burden was the fartherest thing from their void and vacant mental containers. But, he went on, if such molluscs as the complainant seem fit to cause them to suffer for their innocent pleasures, and the products of modern civili- zation will permit such a course, the sick six would resign themselves to their doom and pray to all that is good that some savior will come to their succor soon and bring another bottle of grape juice with him. If this part of the book is never printed, the cause will now be perfectly evident. If it is printed and does not meet popular favor, all the blame can be shifted to the product of the brain and energy of Mr. Black and Mr. Welch. m 1917 263 P Colom oatt NOTICE Anyone caught yachting in the University Lake at any time in the future will be summarily dealt with. This most dangerous sport must be stopped at once. We have warned the students many times in the past of the extreme depth and viciousness of the waters of this treacherous lake, especially in time of storms and high winds. The high winds rushing down Boulder Canon lash the waters into such fury that the 400 ft. dam at the outlet has been on the point of breaking many times. The death rate due to yacht racing and sailing has been almost fifty per cent, higher this year than in any previous season, and it is largely due to this fact that the Senate has passed a stringent rule forbidding the pursuit of this dangerous sport in the future. The two light houses will be kept active in the future, and Rescue Stations No. 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, will still be in operation — merely to guard against any unforeseen accidents.

Harold was a Heart Breaker, at least his long list of heart-broken ones said he was, but he was a very nice boy, and while at this institution of higher learning, he joined one of these thing s known as fraternities, and his fond brothers instilled into him by means of a large oak paddle the rudiments of fraternity life. One of Harold ' s fond brothers was named RoUo, and he was also a nice man, everyone of the members of the Ota Killa Mana sorority said he was, so he must have been. Rollo was tied down to one of these co-eds, and so to show his brotherly spirit he took Harold to see this Dame, and they sat under the windows of the O. K. M. house and played their mando- lins until their fingers ached from the cold. The next night Rollo in another demonstration of his brotherly love took Harold to see his wife. Margie, that was her handle, looked at Harold, and he looked at her, and she in turn looked at Rollo, who in his turn looked like a fool. Harold and Margie got along splendidly, in fact Rollo thought too splendidly. Harold asked Margie how long she had been in the institution and she said she was only a Freshman, then he asked when he could call again, and she said " Oh, almost every day. " Harold decided to take it easy for a while and not push Ol ' Doc Wiley too hard at first, so he started to study a few of the Culture Courses offered by the Little School Out West. His curry-comb —I mean Curriculum — included poetry. Bull Durham, First Course in Eugen- ics, Seminar in Hart, Schaffner and Marx, and Snappy Stories. About this time Margie said her Heart ' s Desire killed too many Pills, and she wished he would stop, so he swore off, except Cubebs and Bull Durham, the last not being tobacco, and the first a disguise. Harold swore off except once a day, namely, from morning till night. Harold thought his Pride of the Rockies ought to attend the Junior Hog-Wrastle, so he called her his Little-Ray- Of-Sunshine, and asked her to go with him. She said he was a Dear and accepted. Harold didn ' t want to leave the Light of his Heart for one single teeney-weeney, but the old folks at home demanded his return to the Palatial Domicile for the Spring Lay-off, and so he tore himself away and went. While he was startling the Home Guards with the Pigeon Walk, Harold met the Dream of Dreams, and she said he was a dear, and liked his Stuff, so Harold throttled his love for Heart ' s Desire and made another date with Dream of Dreams for the Hog-Wrastle. When he returned to the Little School Out West he called up Margie and told her the night before the Wrastle that his Grandmother who was old and feeble wanted him to stay home that night and turn over a pan-cake for her — that he couldn ' t go. So he took Dream of Dreams, and they Pigeon- Walked until Dean Bigelow rang a little bell and called off the fight. Margie said that Harold was no Gentleman, and he said he knew it, but that didn ' t make him one, so they compromised by High-toning each other for a whole week, and then -Harold got a letter telling him that Dream of Dreams was engaged to another -ah, broken-hearted Harold ! His heart wasn ' t quite broken but it was badly dented for a whole week, when he finally pushed it out like a crushed derby and sailed forth to kill.

" " You are too short to want a long short. " " Well, if I was so long getting a short, I would say a short short would be long enuf. I long for a short, and have longed long.

We haven ' t given long shorts long, and a short short is a long short a long time if a long short is a short short long. Unless you have longed for a long short long, then a short short before long will do for a short man short. Before long a short that is long will be a short short, and a short short will be no short at all. " " But a short short is long enuf if a short short is along, but if a long short is short then a long short is a short short, isn ' t it? If a short is long, when is a long short? In short, I want a short before long. You are long enuf, I am short enuf; but I am not so short but that I long long for a long short, and you are not so long but that I long to short a long short. " " So long. " " So short. " FAMOUS QUOTATIONS " Lord, can you blame me? Of course I know it is unusual, but then everyone doesn ' t have a vocabulary like Maude ' s, you know.

You may tango, you may one step, you may do the Chinese blues, but there is one little simple step that people won ' t excuse. When the lady likes to syncopate with arms around your collar and you wouldn ' t try to break her hold if it took your bottom dollar, what can a poor old mere man do? He can not tilt his nose and say " he really likes it and as far as all that goes he does not care what people say nor yet what people think, but it is not the proper thing, now really, don ' t you think? " The girl would cross him off her list and kick him on the shin and the man would have to blame himself for the fix that he was in. We may not all be cultured but at least we ' re civilized; so when people say we ' re vulgar we are all a bit surprised; for the folks that criticise the worst and make the air so blue are sore because they are so old they can not do it too.

The meetings are conducted by the members of the Department of Germanic Languages. The Deutscher Verein is an organization composed of the faculty and students of the German Department. It was estabUshed in the winter of 1912 and has held bi-monthly meetings each college year since then. The purpose of the Verein is to supplement the work of the class-room in awakening and cherishing a love for the literature and music of Germany. Each year one or two simple plays are presented. Special programs are given for festival days, talks on ballads and lyrics by mem- bers of the faculty are illustrated with readings by the students; also informal talks on subjects of general cultural interest are given. The singing of German songs and the rendering of German music are always an important feature of the meetings. 1917 3 i3 y gjimimrmmijl I m €i V : IColomdoan g crit)falcrg Club GRANT FITZELL President ANNA BETH HYDE Vice-President EDWIN PATTON Treasurer NORMA WASSON Secretary M MEMBERS LETITIA BRACE ROBERT CATLETT ZILPHA CARRUTHERS HAZEL CLAMPITT TERRY DUCE GRANT FITZELL ABRAHAM HARTENDORF ANNA BETH HYDE DARTHULA LINDBURG EVERETT LINSLEY RUTH LONG JOHN McCANN FRANCES MYER EDWIN PATTON BESSIE PHILE LESTER RACHOFSKY LEA REIBER WILLIAM ARTHUR ROBINSON F.

The result of a year ' s earnest effort, the cause of endless grief and limitless pleasure, the Coloradoan now rests in your hands to be approved or to be condemned as its merits warrant. Whether it is a success or whether it is a failure depends completely upon the opinion which you, the student body of the University, form concerning it. We do not ask your mercy, for if our work deserves censure, we will welcome it as being just. We do not beseech your approbation, because our labor, the true creation of something, has largely been its own reward. What we do ask, however, is that this volume be taken with a little salt, and that the spirit which has guided us in effecting it be fully comprehended and considered. For, after all, may we ask, why be serious? When, as now, we are passing through the period in our lives in which we can afford to be light hearted, when joy should be dominant and seriousness should be viewed as a necessary evil, a catalogue or a statistical review such as many Annuals are, appeals to us as an Old Ladies Home or a procession of hearses would. Hence we have endeavored to find the bright spots in the College life and emphasize them. In so doing, we have doubtless stepped inadvertently on the toes of many who are deserving of far better than this. It is to those that we direct this appeal, that they accept any offense in the spirit of fun in which it has been given, and appreciate our desire to escape from the musty and dusty columns of the commonplace. Personally, I desire to acknowledge a great debt of gratitude to those who have so loyally assisted me. The Coloradoan Staff has been the most enthusiastic and faithful group which any- one in any capacity might desire. Mr. Cy Meyn, although not a member of the University, has lent his ideas, his talent and his interest in such a spirit as to make the expression of my ap- preciation extremely difficult. Mr. Fowler and Mr. Langer of the Denver Post have assisted me materially. Mr. EUet, Mr. Greenawalt and numerous others have been very kind in the loan of photographs and snapshots. The Boldt Engraving Company and the Kistler Printing Company have labored mightily to help me over the rough spots and to give me the benefit of their knowl- edge and facilities. So now I bring my work to a close with a heart full of joy; and this for many reasons: First, because my time has been spent in endeavoring to do something worth while; second, because my relations with people have justified and developed my belief in the inherent goodness of human nature; and last, because my desire to make things different and better has (I hope) been understood.

The purpose of these last words is to express our thanks to those friends who have, in no small way, made this volume possible. By this we mean the advertisers. Of course, everyone must realize that a great deal more money is needed to put out an Annual than is obtained from its sale. From the following pages come no small proportion of that difference. It has been repeatedly and, we believe, correctly said that a student body is often judged by its publications. Turn the pages and you will find the names of those who are the true supporters of our University life (in so far as this book portrays it). All firms and individuals who derive profit from the student body have been asked to help fill the following section. Many have refused with the plaintive cry of " can ' t afford it. " Wouldn ' t it be possible for us, as individuals, to decide that if these men cannot bear to support this activity which has been the cause of so man ' s financial difficulties of the A. S. v. C. thai it ivill be equally impossible for us to continue smelling their coffers rvith student trade. Rather let us turn to our tried and true friends. THINK IT OVER. ' !.
